The Iowa Wave: College football's greatest tradition returned Saturday
One of the newest but best traditions in college football is back in full force this season—the Iowa Wave.
If you are unfamiliar with the Iowa Wave, it started a few years back, and at the end of the first quarter of every Iowa home game, both teams and all the fans turn towards the Iowa Children’s Hospital and wave to all the patients.
So great to have the 👋 back. 💛 pic.twitter.com/kGAJTmcqTo

The Iowa Wave started on Sept. 2, 2017, in a game against the Wyoming Cowboys. According to cbs2iowa.com
Last season it had to be put on hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, where the B1G did not allow fans besides family members to be a part of the games.
Last season fans were able to wave virtually to the patients.
Currently, the Hawkeyes are leading the Hoosiers 21-3 in the second quarter.
