Game Day

September 16 vs. Western Michigan

Bass drum and horns on the field in Kinnick Stadium

It's time to get ready for the boom!


Spend Game Day with the Hawkeye Marching Band! The Hawkeye Drumline kicks off our game day performances with their popular Lot Show, performed outside Gate H, between Kinnick Stadium and the West Transportation Center. Follow them to the Rec Building for the band's pre-game concert, featuring music from our historic Pregame Show, Halftime, and other popular fan favorites, including Hey Jude. Following the Rec Building show, the band marches over to Kinnick Stadium, performing The Series. Pregame happens in Kinnick Stadium approximately 20 minutes prior to kickoff. And don't miss our half-time performances, which also feature the Iowa Dance Team. After every game, the Hawkeye Marching Band and Iowa Spirit Squads students and staff invite all Hawkeye students and alumni to join us for the singing of Alma Mater Iowa. We perform this from the stands near the South End Zone.
