An Omaha, Neb. man and a couple from Clinton, Iowa will represent their respective states as “citizen heroes” when the University of Nebraska Cornhuskers meet the University of Iowa Hawkeyes on Friday, Nov. 23rd in the second-annual Heroes Game.
The Heroes Game uses the national stage created by this new Big Ten football rivalry to honor the heroic efforts of individuals and organizations in America’s heartland.
Fans of both schools were invited to nominate residents of Iowa and Nebraska who have performed extraordinary acts of heroism and service in their communities.
Athletic Directors Tom Osborne of the University of Nebraska and Gary Barta of the University of Iowa will make a special presentation to the Heroes Game honorees, whose names will be inscribed on the Heroes Game trophy.
Parks, the Halls, and members of their families will be guests of the Cornhuskers and the Hawkeyes at the game and will participate in a variety of special pregame activities.
