Iowa Hawkeyes football. I was in gold on the left in picture here.
Always neat half time show in addition to some exciting football (usually).

Loved the game and stadium. But be careful parking we got a $15 ticket because they rotate sides of streets to park on and no signs indicating this and we are from out of town and did not know that.

College football is a must see in one's life and this is a great place to do so. Tickets can get rather pricey because the fans are SO dedicated but you can happen upon decent priced tickets if you look long enough. Definitely plan to tailgate before the game as that is part of the experience. Take your cooler and your grill along with your awning and prepare for a long pregaming time. Getting into the game does not take long as lines move quickly but they come to an abrupt halt once under the stadium seating. Longs lines for restrooms and food stands are always part of the day. Prices are average for stadium food and drink. Seating is decent and if you are lucky enough to have stadium backs those are helpful. All seats are good and it just depends on where you want to be. We have been on the 20 in the middle of hundreds of people and we have been on the 50 in the last row. Both seats equally good just different views. The scoreboard is nice. The halftime show is average. The stadium views are nice. It is a great campus to walk around if you choose to do so. You can ride the train to the game if you want. That will keep you from dodging all of the traffic both in and out of the stadium. But you still get to sit and wait when you are leaving. Traffic is slow and not well planned out. Traffic volunteers don't really focus on getting cars out quickly. You are better off waiting a half and hour and then driving straight out. We will definitely return as it is a great way to spend a Saturday. Fans are usually pretty nice. Some get a little overzealous when it comes to partaking before the game but that is part of any game day IMO. Family friendly if you want it to be. Great for that weekend mancation/galcation or couples and friends.

Maybe not as big as the Big House or the Horseshoe, bue for rabid, close-to-the-action excitement, there is no place better to watch a game than Kinnick Stadium.

A bandbox of a stadium, one is seated right up on the field. Named after all time great Nile Kinnick, the greatest Iowan ever. Great football player, person, and war hero. Many say he would have been governor had he not been killed in World War II.
