Iowa-Minnesota Reaches Sellout Status

Nov. 14, 2003

The nationally ranked Iowa football team’s 2003 home season finale Saturday against Minnesota has been announced a sellout by UI Director of Ticket Operations David Sandstrum. The game will be the fifth straight sellout inside historic Kinnick Stadium this season.

Sandstrum said a very limited number of “singles” — single-seat locations throughout the stadium — are available and will be on sale at the Athletic Ticket Office locations on game day.

Iowa will be looking for a schoool-record 12th straight victory inside Kinnick Stadium Saturday when it squares off against Minnesota in the annual battle for Floyd of Rosedale.

Kickoff for this year’s battle for Floyd of Rosedale, the bronzed pig awarded to the winner of the annual college football game between Iowa and Minnesota, is set for shortly after 11 a.m. Fans attending the game are encouraged to enter the stadium early to enjoy the Veterans Day and Seniors Day pre-game activites. The game will be televised live by ESPN.

Saturday is also Iowa Football Fan Appreciation Day at Kinnick. Winning seat locations will be displayed on HawkVision throughout the first half. Fans can claim their prizes at the Fan Appreciation Day Redemption Center located in the south concourse immediately below the main scoreboard.

Iowa’s home games this season against Arizona State, Michigan, Penn State, Illinois and Minnesota have reached sellout status. The 2003 season will likely finish second to Iowa’s 1986 season in terms of total attendance. More than 470,000 fans attended the seven home games of the ’86 Iowa football team that finished the regular season 8-3 and defeated San Diego State in the 1986 Holiday Bowl.
