College football is full of great traditions, but Iowa just debuted a new one that may top them all.
The UI Stead Family Children’s Hospital was just built next to the Hawkeyes’ Kinnick Stadium and it has a fantastic view of the field, so at the end of the first quarter, fans were asked to turn towards the children’s hospital and wave at the patients. They did, and it’s already one of the coolest moments of the season:
