UI prepares for heat at Saturday Hawkeye game

Posted: Updated:

The University of Iowa is making adjustments to prepare for a hot game on Saturday.

Temperatures are expected to be in the upper 80's making it the warmest game of the season so far. 

The hawks will take on North Texas at 2:35 p.m.

For some fans who travel from Texas the temperatures won't be too shocking.

   "Ironically where we just came from was of course Houston, Texas. So it can't be hotter than that so it should be find for me for being there, but other than that I am gonna bring a cap, wear some sunglasses and definitely some water," says Michael Dillner a former Iowa Football Player. 

The University announced it will have hydration stations in each corner of the stadium and fans will be able to bring empty disposable water bottles into Kinnick. 
Full water bottles will also be allowed as long as they have not yet been opened. 

In addition, water bottles will be sold at a reduced price at the concession stands. 
"It's a good thing they are providing water because I think some people probably won't be thinking about that," says Alec Sheppard, a student. 

The rest area outside of the first aid station will also be expanded for the game. 

In the rest area there will be cool air and shelter for fans who need a break. 

Other than water bottles, the rest of the stadium rules as far as what you can and can't bring will remain the same.
