Iowa Hawkeyes Football

Ever since 1889, the Iowa Hawkeyes football team has represented the University of Iowa, in Iowa City, in the state of Iowa. In short, everything about the Hawkeyes screams IOWA at the top of its lungs, and the team’s performance on the field over the past century and a quarter has made many across the state very proud of its achievements (aside from fans of their bitter rivals, the Iowa State Cyclones, who would very much dispute the Hawkeyes’ claim to represent Iowa!). With 5 claimed national titles, 13 total conference titles, and 20 Bowl victories (20-18-1 in Bowl games), the Hawkeyes have an impressive record, and current head coach Kirk Ferentz, the longest-serving coach in NCAA football right now, has continued to add to this legacy in his two and a half decades at the helm. Hawkeyes fans make a big deal out of home games, with hours (or days) of buildup through pep rallies, parties, and tailgating. When the game finally comes, Kinnick Stadium fills up with fans decked out in the team colors of black and gold, belting out the Iowa Fight Song and rocking out to the team’s entry tunes of “Back in Black”by ACDC and “Enter Sandman” by Metallica. If the Hawkeyes win, everyone bursts into a rousing rendition of “Im Himmel gibt's kein Bier” (In Heaven There is No Beer). Don’t worry though, there might not be beer “upstairs” but there certainly is beer in the stadium! In recent years, fans have also started a lovely new tradition called the Kinnick Wave, in which the whole crowd turns to wave at young patients in a children’s hospital that overlooks the stadium.

Iowa Hawkeyes Rivalries

The Iowa Hawkeyes might have several rivalries, but only one really (really!) counts: the showdown with the Iowa State Cyclones. Happily for the Hawkeyes, they have had the upper hand in this long-standing state clash, with a record of 47-23 in their favor. The Hawkeyes’ other main rivals are the Minnesota Golden Gophers, Nebraska Cornhuskers, and Wisconsin Badgers
