  • Iowa’s athletic teams, named the Hawkeyes, compete in Division 1 of the NCAA and are members of the Big Ten Conference.
  • The Hawkeye’s greatest rivals are the University of Wisconsin Badgers and the University of Nebraska Cornhuskers.

Game Day

Game day is always exciting on Iowa’s campus, join in the excitement and take part in Iowa’s favorite traditions:

Touch the statue of Nile Kinnick.  On your way to the stadium, make sure to touch the statue of Nile Kinnick, a football hero to the University, to ensure good luck for the Hawkeyes.

Stop by the Magic Bus. Operated by the Iowa City Rugby Football Club, this tailgating destination is arguably the number one spot to visit on game day.
