The Legend of the CyHawk Game

It’s a rivalry up there with the greats! Yankee vs. Red Sox. Ali vs. Frazier. Celtics vs. Lakers. Once you’re in Iowa, there’s no rivalry greater than Cy the Cardinal vs. Herky the Hawkeye!

Okay, that might be a little biased, but it is an impressive history! It’s time for the annual CyHawk competition!

The legend of this series begins back in 1894 where the two universities would play each other in friendly competition. It wasn’t until 1977 that the CyHawk trophy was introduced. And that is when the game changed!

[Here is a trailer about the CyHawk series!]

Let the record show that Iowa State won the first three encounters and ever since then, the two adversaries have been traded off victories left and right. The last win went to the (ugh!) Hawkeyes, but I have a lot faith that we’ll be seeing that trophy back in our case really soon!

So who will be on the winning side of history this year come Saturday September 9th? Hope to see you rooting for your Cyclones! What you gonna do, I-S-U?!
