Michigan State teams up with Iowa fans for touching Kinnick Wave at Spartan Stadium

Iowa’s Kinnick Wave is the best new tradition in college football. During the first quarter of every home game at Kinnick Stadium, Hawkeyes fans turn toward the children’s hospital and wave.

The kids in the hospital wave back, too.

Iowa didn’t play at home on Saturday, but Michigan State fans helped the Hawkeyes continue the gesture with a two-team wave.

This comes after ESPN’s College GameDay participated in the wave on Saturday morning.

The tradition began with a simple Facebook post, and it’s exploded into a movement.

“It’s amazing,” Amy Condon, whose son George is a patient at the hospital, told Land of 10. “You can see everything. It’s got to be one of the best seats in the house. You can literally see — if my friend were sitting right across from us in that [top] row of seats, I’d be able to wave to her.”

Land of 10’s Scott Dochterman captured the first nighttime Kinnick Wave last week when the Nittany Lions hosted Penn State.
