Well done, Iowa.

Hawkeye fans waved in unison towards the windows of the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital at the end of the first quarter of Saturday’s win vs. Wyoming.

The children’s hospital is right next to Kinnick Stadium and the Press Box Cafe was added at the top of it before the 2017 season. The top level is designed to become a gathering spot for patients and their families to watch Iowa football games.

So Saturday, Iowa had its fans in attendance give a big wave to all of the kids watching from above. How cool is this?

Here’s what the view looks like from the top of the hospital.

This is set to become one of the best traditions in college football.
