It's the first Rose Bowl for Iowa since 1991. So how excited are fans? The university got 55,000 requests for its allotment of 22,000 tickets. Many more than the 22,000 are believed to have made the trek to Pasadena, with about 50,000 Hawkeyes fans expected.
From what I'm hearing, anyone who really wants to go is finding a way to get their foot in the stadium.
