Saturday was a fun day to be a Hawkeye.
More than 110,000 fans were inside the University of Iowa’s Kinnick Stadium in a day’s time, as the school hosted back-to-back events inside the venue for two different sports.
The stadium—which has a listed capacity of only 70,585—was the home site for over 40,000 fans that witnessed the No. 4 Iowa wrestling team beat top-ranked Oklahoma State in the morning and later in the day, brought in a sold out crowd to watch the undefeated Iowa football team beat Minnesota 40-35.
The Iowa athletic department put together a unique time-lapse video showcasing the memorable day inside their stadium.

The Hawkeyes and Cowboys split 10 matches, 5-5, but Iowa scored bonus points at 125 and, after dropping three straight, regained the lead for good with a crowd-pleasing technical fall at 184.
The attendance for the wrestling match was the largest dual crowd in NCAA history.
Iowa’s football team—ranked sixth in the country this week—had an impressive day on offensive end, piling up a season-high 506 yards and scoring on seven of their 10 possessions.
The Hawkeyes moved to 10-0 for the first time in school history after the win.
