Where is the Hawkeyes Bench Located?

Best Seats at Kinnick Stadium

Traditionally, the best seats in which to watch the game from in Kinnick Stadium would be located as close as possible to the 50 yard line, which in this stadium would be section 127 on the Hawkeye's bench side and section 105 on the opposing team's bench side. It should be noted that one would probably want to sit up a few rows (roughly 8-10) if you are seated in a section behind a team bench, as it is possible the players and staff on the field could obstruct one???s view.

Kinnick Stadium History and Overview

Opened in 1929, Kinnick Stadium is one of the 20 largest university-owned stadiums in the nation. The stadium is named after the 1939 Heisman Trophy-winning halfback Nile Kinnick, who was and still is the only Heisman winner in university history. Kinnick Stadium was originally named Iowa Stadium until 1972, when the UI athletic board made Kinnick Stadium the first and only college football stadium named after a Heisman Trophy Winner. The stadium is well known for its pink visitor's locker room, which was a tradition started by former Hawkeye head coach Hayden Fry, who believed that the pink color would put opponents in a passive mood.
