Penn State Sideline, Referees Participate in ‘Kinnick Wave’ after First Quarter at Iowa

There are moments in life that transcend sports, and one of those is the ‘Kinnick Wave” at Kinnick Stadium during Iowa games.

After the first quarter of the Penn State-Iowa game, all 60,000 plus fans in Kinnick Stadium turned to face the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital and waved to the children and their families in the hospital windows — one of the greatest traditions in college football.

Fans inside the stadium might be cheering for different teams, but Nittany Lions and Hawkeyes fans cheered in unison for the children fighting battles inside the hospital. The Wave began on Sept. 7, 2017 as a way to help cheer up the children inside the hospital who were watching the game from the hospital’s “press box.”

At the end of the first quarter, Penn State led Iowa 14-3 despite a couple of early interceptions from senior quarterback Sean Clifford.
