Iowa Hawkeyes

The School

59 days after Iowa became a state, The University of Iowa was established on February 25, 1847. Although classes wouldn't begin until March 1855 and a football team wouldn't take the field for another 44 years.

The Mascot

References to "hawk-eye" go back to the 1800's, popularized at the time by James Fenimore Cooper's book, "Last of the Mohicans." Letters to Iowa newspapers were often signed, "Hawk-eye." Iowa residents ever since are called hawk-eyes.
