Iowa Hawkeye fans traveling to Florida can join the 'Hawkeye Huddle' fun at the Channelside Bay Plaza. It will be a new Huddle experience under the Florida sun to start the New Year.

Join the University of Iowa Alumni Association and the Athletics Development office as the Outback Bowl Hawkeye Huddle goes outdoors! Join the party at the beautiful Channelside Bay Plaza (web) on Sunday, January 1, 2017 from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM as the team prepares Tampa for a Hawkeye takeover.

Enjoy what is sure to be a glorious late afternoon in Tampa with Herky, the Spirit Squads, the Hawkeye Marching Band and potential VIP surprise guests. New this year, fans can enjoy a FREE concert following the Huddle, highlighted by country music star and Hawkeye fan Jake McVey.

The Iowa men’s basketball game vs. Michigan is scheduled for January 1 with tip-off still TBD. The game will be shown at establishments within Channelside.

Food and beverage are available for purchase from the restaurants located within the Channelside area. Seating will be limited at the Huddle and fans are encouraged to utilize the seating in Channelside’s establishments, mingle in the open air courtyard, and enjoy the camaraderie of fellow Hawkeyes.

Hawkeye Huddles are provided free of charge by the UI Alumni Association and the UI Athletics Development office at the UI Foundation. The Outback Bowl Huddle is sponsored by the Iowa River Landing (web).
