Iowa has a lot of big games coming up on its 2017 schedule. The Hawkeyes could be sporting a different look for one of them.
Kirk Ferentz was asked about the chances of Iowa wearing an alternate uniform during his weekly radio show on Wednesday night. “We’ll probably mix one in this year,” the 19th-year head coach responded.
Ferentz had said over the summer that he expected the Hawkeyes to break out an alternate look at some point during the 2017 season. The last time the Hawkeyes did so was in 2015 against Minnesota when they wore an all-black look at home.
Iowa hosts Penn State, Illinois (for homecoming), Ohio State (for Iowa’s annual blackout game) and Minnesota this season. One of those four games would make sense for an alternate look if the Hawkeyes wear one again at home.
The program has made one style change already this season, adding the “Tigerhawk” logo to midfield at Kinnick Stadium.
