IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

The Hawkeyes' undefeated record this season is bringing out excitement in downtown Iowa City like never before.

"I've just never seen anything like it," said Leah Cohen, owner of Bo-James Bar in downtown Iowa City. "It's big excitement with all those players."

More people and places than ever are sporting their Hawkeye gear, and fans couldn't be prouder of their team - especially after the big win.

"We were so excited to hear that they're 12-0," Hawkeye fan Carly Flinn said.

"I love the hawks, they are the greatest," fan Roy Wilson said.

With the season nearing its end, thousands of fans from across the Midwest are making sure to stop by Iowa City.

Kinnick Stadium may be closing it's doors for football this season, but according to some people in Iowa City, that shouldn't make Hawkeye fans any less excited for the remaining games.

"Usually away games, when they play away, they aren't quite as busy," Cohen said. "This year, all of those games have been very busy and it's just everyone following the hawks."

Cohen said this year, even people who watch the games at home head downtown after, to join in the excitement surrounding the city after wins this year.

And fans are already looking forward to the thrill of next week's game.

Whether the hawks play Michigan, Michigan State or Ohio state, fans are sure to celebrate their team.

"Downtown Iowa City will be packed all day long. There will be such excitement for this game," Cohen said.
