Official Iowa Football Game Day Blog Is Back!

Aug. 31, 2010

IOWA CITY, Iowa – Due to the large following and positive feedback, the Official Iowa Football Game Day Blog is back for another season! Thanks to everyone who participated last season! We certainly were treated to one of the most exciting Iowa football seasons and Hawkeye fans across the world are hoping for more of the same this year.

This year’s blog will include numerous new features, including prize giveaways every week. Any fan who signs up for a blog e-mail reminder will automatically be registered to win that week’s prize. The prize for the Eastern Illinois Game Day Blog is a pair of tickets to next week’s Iowa State game! The winner will be chosen at random and notified via e-mail if they won.

Fans who sign up for an e-mail reminder will also be added to the upcoming “Hawk Talk Daily” e-newsletter list. “Hawk Talk Daily” will be the new official daily e-newsletter from the UI Athletic Department.

Another new feature for 2010 is a pre-game chat with Rob Brooks, sideline reporter for the Hawkeye Radio Network. Rob will be live on the Iowa sideline at approximately 10:30 a.m. to answer a few questions from Hawkeye fans.

More new features include pre-game videos from around Kinnick Stadium and in-game photos.

During the game, staff of the Iowa Sports Information Office will be manning the Official Iowa Football Game Day Blog from the press box to provide up-to-the-minute play-by-play, notes and stats about the game. Fans have the opportunity to voice their opinion by submitting questions and comments and answer polls.

A reminder, due to the volume of entries, not everyone’s questions or comments can be posted.

The live blog will begin at approximately 10:15 a.m. (CT) and run throughout the game. Click on the interactive box below to join the conversation.
