George Kittle takes in Iowa’s NCAA Tournament contest vs. West Virginia

Carver-Hawkeye Arena is the place everybody wants to be at on Monday night as the Iowa Hawkeyes take on West Virginia in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

It is truly the last ride as Caitlin Clark, Kate Martin and Gabbie Marshall will play in front of yet another sold-out crowd of Iowa faithful for the last time. One last time for the greatest player in Iowa history.

All year, Iowa has been the hot ticket. Across the nation, fans have flocked to catch a glimpse of the Hawkeyes play. New fans flocked to the sport.

Clark even got celebrities such as Mick Foley, Travis Scott, and even Jake From State Farm out to games. And now, she has one of the greatest Hawkeye football players out for her final home game.

One of the best tight ends in the NFL, George Kittle was spotted in Carver, soaking in the playoff atmosphere. The San Francisco 49ers star was seen wearing the jersey of his wife, Claire.

Kittle was given the mic before the game to hype up the Iowa crowd. Naturally, Kittle got quite the ovation as he made his way to his seat.

In typical Kittle fashion, he had time for the fans, too.

From one of the best football players to come out of the University of Iowa to its greatest basketball player. Game recognizes game.
