College GameDay Coming to Iowa City 

IOWA CITY, Iowa – The University of Iowa women’s basketball team will host No. 2 Indiana in front of a sellout crowd on Feb. 26 on national television. To further amplify the highly-anticipated Big Ten showdown at 1 p.m. (CT), ESPN’s College GameDay Covered by State Farm will broadcast live from Carver-Hawkeye Arena on Mediacom Court for the first time in school history from 10 to 11 a.m.

Elle Duncan will host the show alongside commentators Andraya Carter, Rebecca Lobo, Carolyn Peck and Holly Rowe. Duncan also will report live for ESPN SportsCenter during the 9 to 10 a.m. window.

Arena gates open to ticketed fans to the game at 9 a.m. Fans should sit in sections AA-B first and fill in around after that. After the show has concluded, fans may exit the arena and re-enter with the same ticket for the game.


Our program is thrilled to be one-of-three schools selected this season to have College GameDay on our campus. It’s a huge honor and we are looking forward to showcasing our program on one of the grandest stages.


Free food will be provided. Students can claim their tickets here. Cambus will begin their normal Red Route and Blue Route service at 8:30 a.m. to facilitate transportation of students from the residence halls and downtown to the arena for GameDay.

Normal parking procedures will begin at 8 a.m. until tipoff. Please visit the Iowa WBB Gameday page for more information.

The UI Athletic Ticket Office is anticipating high demand and fraudulent ticket activity for the game. Fans should be aware of potential scams and always purchase from a guaranteed source. The UI Athletic Ticket Office will only be able service/support purchases made through The UI Athletic Ticket Office,

All doors will be open besides the East entrance for the show.
