Update!

Inclement weather has forced us to cancel tonight’s Free BBQ event. We’re very sorry to have to do it, and we hope you will join us for other events this fall!

Free BBQ Canceled

W e’re gearing up for Saturday’s big game! The legendary Iowa-Iowa State rivalry makes for an exciting football game every year, and we’re counting down the hours until kick-off!

Whether you’re making the trek to Kinnick or enjoying the game from your personal fan cave, we have the scoop on your tailgating MVPs—that’s Most Valuable Provisions!

We asked around the office to compile the ultimate Cy-Hawk game day menu. See how your spread stacks up!

  • Most mouth-watering munchies: Seven-layer dip was the top choice, followed by tortilla roll-ups and veggies with hummus.
  • Most enticing entrees: Bratwursts are a perennial fan favorite, but breakfast pizza, breakfast burritos and burgers got a lot of love from the Homemakers team, too!

A good tailgate isn’t complete without a little healthy competition! Get pumped up with our favorite game—bags! Yes, we’re flouting the American Cornhole Association (it’s real!) by refusing to call this beloved pastime by any other name. If you’re looking to change things up a bit, Polish horseshoes is another top contender. We’re also huge fans of flippy cup, ladder golf and even just tossing around a football.

Don’t forget to add a splash of style! You’ll be the talk of the tailgate after you stock up on all the necessary gear at our College Shop. We have everything from tables and chairs to picnic totes and platters, plus tons of cool accessories for rec rooms, dorms, offices and more! You’ll find the perfect way to show your true colors, whether you’re a lifelong Cyclones fan or a die-hard Hawkeyes devotee!

We also took an office poll to see who was the favored to win Saturday’s game. It was a close call, with 55% cheering for the Hawkeyes and 45% rooting for the Cyclones.

The last three Iowa-Iowa State football games have been decided by six points or fewer, and after Iowa State’s heartbreaker versus Kansas State, we think either team could pull off a win this year. It’s sure to be a great game!
