|Iowa Hoping to Create Striped Effect at Stadium
|IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- The University of Iowa wants to make Kinnick Stadium a coordinated sea of black and gold for Saturday night's game against No. 22 Penn State.
Fans of the Hawkeyes are being asked to wear either black or gold, depending on where they sit, to create a striped effect throughout the 70,000-seat stadium.
People in odd-numbered sections and students are encouraged to wear black. Fans in even-number sections are being asked to wear gold.
The 17th-ranked Hawkeyes host the Nittany Lions in the Big Ten opener for both teams.
