The Iowa Corn Cy-Hawk Series

Iowa’s corn farmers are proud to sponsor the Iowa Corn Cy-Hawk Series to celebrate our great state and the sports rivalry that unites us all. The Iowa Corn Growers Association and the Iowa Corn Promotion Board partner with Learfield on behalf of both Iowa State University and University of Iowa Athletic Departments for the title sponsorship of the Iowa Corn Cy-Hawk Series™.

2021-22 marks the tenth year of the Iowa Corn Cy-Hawk Series which tracks the head-to-head match-ups between the Cyclones and Hawkeyes with each victory earning points toward the overall series championship. (The Iowa Corn Cy-Hawk Series was paused during 2020-21 as Covid-19 restrictions prevented the teams from meeting in head to head match ups.)

The schools compete in women’s soccer, volleyball, football, women’s and men’s cross country, women’s and men’s basketball, swimming and diving, wrestling, women’s tennis, gymnastics, and softball.
