Iowa Sports Teams: Cyclones & Hawkeyes

College teams dominate the sports action in Iowa. With no professional teams to cheer for, all the attention goes to the two big schools in the state: the Iowa State Cyclones and the University of Iowa Hawkeyes. Iowa State Cyclones fans can be found in Ames and nearby Des Moines. With a top-25 ranked football program, Iowa State plays in the NCAA Division I’s Big Ten Conference. Fans go wild at home games every fall at Jack Trice Stadium. Wear your red and gold to cheer for the Cyclones.

Eastern Iowa is Hawkeye country. Competing in the NCAA Division I’s Big Ten Conference, the Hawkeyes are a force to be reckoned with. Fans dressed in black and gold come out in droves at every home game - especially during football season at Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City. Teams from Drake University and the University of Northern Iowa also bring the action at college competitions. Love baseball? Iowa is known for its Minor League and independent baseball teams.
