Kittle is Honorary Captain

Oct. 26, 2006

Former Iowa offensive lineman Bruce Kittle has been selected to be Iowa’s honorary captain for Saturday’s game against Northern Illinois. The Hawkeyes face the Huskies in a televised game with kickoff set for 11:03 a.m. in sold out Kinnick Stadium.

Kittle, a lineman from Cedar Falls, was a four-year letterman (1977-79 & 1981). He helped Iowa to a co-Big Ten championship and Rose Bowl appearance in 1981, a year he served as one of the Hawkeye co-captains. He missed much of the 1981 season with a knee injury.

He will accompany the Iowa captains to the center of the field for the pre-game coin-flip. He will also be with the Hawkeyes on the sidelines and in the locker room before and after the game.
