Every kid that grows up in Iowa knows how big of a deal it is when the Cyclones and Hawkeyes play each other.

I still remember showing up to elementary and middle school the Friday before Iowa and ISU would face off and everyone would be wearing their favorite Cyclone or Hawkeye shirt or jersey. One kid brought a full-on flag and flew it out the window of the bus on the way to school.

Yeah. It's a huge thing -- even in tiny towns across the state.

And the players who will take to the field know it, especially if they're from one of those tiny Iowa towns. Here's a list of each player on the Cyclones' and Hawkeyes' rosters that will represent their hometown and their school district when they play in the Cy-Hawk Game this weekend:
