A corn maze announcing the annual Iowa – Iowa State football game just East of Ames, Iowa. The image is on its side but you should be able to see the University of Iowa’s ‘Herky the Hawk’ to the right and Iowa State University’s ‘Cy’ tornado-thing to the left. Below is the date of the game – Sept 13, 2003. Thanks: Adam Sachs, Brian Messenger & Marc Armstrong
