CyHawk 2016


Last Saturday didn't go as planned, that is undeniable.  I'd be lying if I said that I wasn't incredibly disappointed as my wife and I slowly made our way back to the rental car after the game in Ames. A combination of mistakes, missed opportunities and inexperience led to an embarrassing loss at the hands of a capable but beatable UNI team.

This feeling isn't unfamiliar, we've been here before and it never gets easier to endure. We knew going into the game that the offensive line was a work in progress. We also knew that the new staff had raised everyone's hopes to expect big things. There we were as a fanbase, stuck in the middle of trying to be optimistic yet realistic. 
It's a balancing act that is never comfortable. The good news is that the mistakes that hamstrung us time and again in the season opener are fixable. The bad news is that we face #10 Iowa and #12 TCU over the next two weeks, both games on the road.  I don't think anyone expects a 180 degree turnaround from week 1 to week 2 but progress is likely. If the end of the streak in 1998 taught us anything, it is that you can never predict precisely how these games will turn out.  The Cyclones haven't lost in Kinnick Stadium since 2010 but this Hawkeye team will be ready, the question is... Are the Cyclones able to pull off another upset for the ages?  Join us this weekend and see.

Go Cyclones!

The Iowa State Club of DFW has made special arrangements to reserve a large tailgating lot for Cyclone fans attending the game and wanting to participate in a Texas Sized Tailgate Party. This is a high school parking area about 3/4 mile east of Amon G Carter Stadium.  Parking near the stadium has climbed to $40-50 on gameday and the shuttle buses provided will conveniently drop you off right in front of the stadium and run back and forth every 10-15 minutes. The Cyclone lot is open all night so get there as early as you need and get your tailgate on!

This is a BYOT (Bring Your Own Tailgate) for everyone to gather and pre-game. We have arranged to have a couple of Food Trucks available for weary travelers and locals to purchase food and drinks. We have secured Gorgonzola (Breakfast Menu) and Salsa Limon Truck to provide breakfast tacos, etc.



To guarantee access into the private tailgate party you must reserve your spaces and bring your receipt.  The lot is at Paschal High School and the school has arranged has free shuttle buses (multiple motor coaches) rotating back and forth to the stadium gates from directly in front of our parking lot. You can purchase parking spaces on gameday but you may be in the adjacent lot.

The parking lot will be open for RVs at 5 PM on Friday night and will be open very early on Saturday morning. Alcohol is allowed, food is encouraged and whatever you do, don’t forget to bring your Cyclone Spirit!


$150 for RV reservation (5 spaces) including Fri and Sat overnight


$15 / single space - Special discounted reserved, pre-sale price*

*Gameday purchase available as there are hundreds of adjacent parking spots next to our lot.

Directions From I-35: exit Berry St and go West for approx 2 miles, turn right (North) onto either Gordon Ave or Townsend Dr and follow signs into the parking lot.  Our designated parking lot is across the street from 2925 Gordon Ave so you can plug that address into your GPS.
