There are many different reasons to get excited about the holidays and here at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Clive, that includes looking forward to watching the college football bowl games. While there are lots of anticipated games, we’re especially partial to the bowls featuring Iowa football!
This weekend the best place to watch sports in Des Moines is right here at the Boot! The Hawkeyes are up first on Friday night and the Cyclones will be playing on Saturday morning.
Hawkeyes Head to the Holiday Bowl
On Friday, December 27, 2019, at 7:00 pm, our Iowa Hawkeyes will take on the USC Trojans at SDCCU Stadium in San Diego for the Holiday Bowl. This year the Hawkeyes have a couple of extra incentives to go for the win. A victory here will make then the 9th team in program history to win at least 10 games! They will also be playing in honor of the memory of coaching legend Hayden Fry who recently passed away. We’ve got a record of 9-3 and USC comes in with a record of 8-4, so this should be an exciting match-up to watch!
Cyclones Tackle the Camping World Bowl
On Saturday, December 28, 2019, at 11:00 am, Iowa’s other pride and joy, the Iowa State Cyclones, are taking on Notre Dame’s Fighting Irish at the Camping World Stadium in Orlando. This will be the first time for both teams to play in this bowl game. The Cyclones are heading into the game with a record of 7-5 to Notre Dame’s 10-2 record but we know Iowa State will give us a game to be proud of!
