Iowa Hawkeyes vs Arizona

Last Saturday was week 3 of Hawkeye football. And guess what…we’re 3-0!! What a great way to start the season. This was another non-conference game, but that didn’t mean there wasn’t competition. Iowa ended up winning 27-17! It was a great win on a beautiful day in Iowa City!

To back up a bit, the game didn’t start until 2:35pm, so we were able to sleep in a bit….got up at 5am instead of 3:30 am! Still too early!! But we got to our tailgate lot just in time, there were hardly any spots left! But we s-q-u-e-e-z-e-d in! Kyle does a good parking job. I wasn’t even thinking, I should have taken a picture of how tight we were!! It was tight!! We met up with Sara, Vahn, and the rest of the tailgate group for a while.  DSC04499 

Sara’s Dad, Don, and good friend Ed, were in charge of the meat this week. They made pork loin and brisket! Mmmm!! Now that’s what I’m talking about!!DSC04500 

I love Saturday mornings in Iowa City!!DSC04501 

After tailgating a while, we walked up towards Kinnick Stadium to meet up with Mark and Kathy. On the way we ran into the drum line…very cool!DSC04502

And this is where my camera battery died. :( So no action shots from this game…but we won, so that is all that matters! Next week the Hawks head to Happy Valley to play Penn State and we’re hoping for a big win!!
