Homecoming highlight, Oct. 19: Sports Night

The University of Iowa’s 2011 Homecoming celebration, which runs through Saturday, Oct. 22, will feature Sports Night from 6 to 9 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 19, at the UI Athletics Hall of Fame, 2525 Prairie Meadow Drive.

Fans can meet UI athletes and Herky, get autographs, and interact with various UI student organizations.

The University of Iowa’s Homecoming tradition began nearly 100 years ago and has grown tremendously over the years. Each year, thousands of UI students, alumni, and faculty, and residents of Iowa City and surrounding communities, come together for a weeklong celebration of Hawkeye pride leading up to the Saturday Homecoming football game.
