The Iowa Hawkeyes started the best tradition in all of college football this season.

At the end of the first quarter, everyone turns toward the Iowa Children’s Hospital and waves. The tradition is now dubbed as the “Iowa Wave”.

On Saturday, the Minnesota Golden Gophers travel to Iowa to take on the Hawkeyes. Since the Golden Gophers are preparing for the Hawkeyes, coach P.J. Fleck gave his thoughts on Iowa’s new tradition. Hint: He loves it.


It’s probably safe to assume Minnesota will be partaking in the tradition on Saturday.

Kickoff between Minnesota and Iowa is slated for 6:30 p.m. ET and will be televised on FS1.
