In case you didn’t know, Iowa fans are a passionate bunch.

That much was clear when Indianapolis was flooded with black and gold at the B1G Championship last weekend. Many suggested it felt like an Iowa home game because of their fans’ majority presence at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Iowa fans are making a serious bid to make another postseason site feel like home.

According to the Des Moines Register’s Chad Leistikow, over 50,000 Hawkeye fans put in ticket requests for the Rose Bowl.

That shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. It is Iowa’s first time playing in the game in 25 years.

Unofficially, it’s the highest volume of tickets requested by one side for the “Grandaddy of them All.”

For those that miss out on the initial wave of requested tickets, the secondary market is still open. But as of Friday afternoon, the cheapest tickets were selling for $590.

It’s clear that Iowa fans definitely didn’t throw in the towel after the B1G Championship loss.
