Iowa fans are known for rabid support of their teams, namely in football and wrestling.

The Arizona Athletic Department knows this and has priced tickets for this fall’s game against the Hawkeyes accordingly.

According to this story in the Press Citizen, ticket costs for the Iowa game are the highest priced ticket in Arizona’s offering this year, more so than even the ASU and USC home games.

The article also says that Iowa has stopped taking orders on their 4,000 ticket allotment for the road game at Michigan and the 3,000 ticket allotment for the season ending roadie at Minnesota.

Even then, the Gophers will probably return some of those tickets to Iowa.

Back to the Arizona game…Iowa fans are used to seeing mostly cavernous stadiums when the go on the road, but that will not be the case in Arizona, as they seat just over 56,000. The record crowd there is just shy of 60,000, and this game could challenge that mark.

If you have ever wanted to travel west to watch the Hawkeyes play, this might be your last chance; Kirk Ferentz is not fond of heading out to the Pacific Time zone to play, especially since those games can be played at night when kickoff time approaches 9pm, or as is the case this year, 9:30pm central time. I would predict this will be the last such regular season instance of this happening for the remainder of the Kirk Ferentz era.
