Mark your calendars for this Fall’s “Fight For Iowa” games and check back throughout the year for updates to our winter and spring “Fight For Iowa” games.

Fight for Iowans

From the farmers in the fields to researchers finding cures for cancer, Iowa is home to the most dedicated and hard-working individuals. The University of Iowa Athletic Department is committed to honoring and recognizing individuals who proudly represent the Hawkeye State.

The department is accepting nominations of individuals who best embody the values, determination, and integrity that Iowa stands for. Whether it is an individual who has made a significant impact in their community or contributed to a significant accomplishment, we are looking for people who consistently fight to represent themselves, their families, and their state.

This year, seven individuals will be selected and recognized during a home football game at Kinnick Stadium.
