The attendance for today’s Iowa football game is 64,201 – the lowest turnout at Kinnick Stadium in 10 years.
The Hawkeyes have also drawn less than 70,000 three straight games.
Iowa had a run of 30 consecutive sellouts, before last November’s game against Nebraska. This season’s opener against Northern Illinois drew 67.402.
Today’s marks the lowest since a crowd of 54,471 saw Iowa play Buffalo on Sept. 6, 2003.
True freshman starts: Cornerback Desmond King became the first true freshman to start for Iowa since linebacker James Morris in 2010. King, a native of Detroit, replaced injured sophomore Jordan Lomax in the starting lineup today.
Lomax made his first career start against Northern Illinois last Saturday, but suffered a hamstring injury. King was the only true freshman to play for Iowa last Saturday.
Two other true freshmen saw their first action for the Hawkeyes in today’s first half: running back LeShun Daniels and wide receiver Matt VandeBerg.
