A former Iowa tight end will return to Kinnick Stadium on Saturday to watch the Hawkeyes take on Iowa State in the annual rivalry game. But he won’t just be in attendance for the in-state clash, he’ll be serving a special role.

Iowa announced that former All-B1G tight end Michael Titley will be the honorary captain for this weekend’s game against the Cyclones, accompanying the other Hawkeye captains at midfield for the pre-game coin toss.

Titley played for the Hawkeyes in 1989 and 1990, recording 51 receptions for 436 yards and three touchdowns in his two seasons. He was an All-B1G selection in the 1990 season after helping lead Iowa to a Rose Bowl appearance.

He was drafted in the 10th round of the 1991 NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins.

Iowa State and Iowa will square off on Saturday inside Kinnick Stadium. The Hawkeyes are winners of the last three games in the rivalry, and have taken four of the last five meetings.
