Hawk Truck


Maybe you have seen it.
On game days, the Black and Gold 18-wheeler can be found nestled near the tailgate lot between Kinnick Stadium and the Bubble. The trailer reads, "It's great to be a Hawkeye," a diesel-chugging celebration of Iowa football past and present. The truck is owned by Lone Tree's Mike Riggan, and it is used to transport Iowa's football equipment to and from away games.

And here's the kicker: Riggan doesn't charge the university a dime. The Vietnam War veteran doesn't even claim his service as a donation to the Athletics Department.

"We do this for the football team," he said. "We bleed the Black and Gold — always have."
