Purdue, Wisconsin Football Games Sold Out

Oct. 25, 2004

Iowa’s final two home football games – Nov. 6 against Purdue and Nov. 20 versus Wisconsin – are sold out. The announcement came today from David Sandstrum, Iowa’s director of ticket operations.

The Purdue game will begin at 2:35 p.m. and will be televised to a national cable audience on ESPN. The starting time and television plans for the game against Wisconsin haven’t been determined yet.

Today’s announcement means Iowa will have sellouts (70,397) for all six home games in 2004. It’s the first time the Hawkeyes have sold out every home game during a season. Saturday’s game at Illinois is expected to be the first non-sellout crowd, home or away, that Iowa has played in this year.

The home attendance average of 70,397 this season will be a new record for the Hawkeyes. It will break the record average of 70,071 set in 1991.
