Hawkeyes Again Adjust Kinnick Stadium Policy Due to Heat
For a second consecutive week, officials will allow fans to bring in water to help deal with the heat forecast for this weekend. The Iowa Hawkeyes play host to #4 Penn State.
Saturday’s temperatures are expected to reach the 90s with peak temperatures at 3:00 PM, and University of Iowa officials are again implementing game day procedures designed to assist fans attending Saturday’s football game at Kinnick Stadium. They did this last weekend when the Hawkeyes hosted North Texas.
The adjustment allows fans to enter Kinnick Stadium with empty water bottles of any size and/or an unlimited number of sealed water bottles.
Water Monsters will again be stationed at each of the four corners of the Kinnick Stadium concourse to help with hydration. Aramark will also sell bottled water at the stadium concession stands at a reduced price.
For any fan in distress or in need of a break from the heat, an expanded rest area is available outside the First Aid Station at the southeast corner of the stadium. This space will provide shelter, cool air, and hydration.
If you plan to tailgate before the game, officials remind fans to plan accordingly and stay hydrated.
If you or someone attending the game is in need of medical assistance, please alert CSC stadium staff or ask those around to signal for help.
