The competition at a Cyclone football game goes beyond the grid iron – this year, we’re taking it to the tailgate lots!  When your friends and family think about the best tailgate, are they thinking of yours?  Is pork a major part of your tailgate food spread? 

If so, we want YOU to be a part of our Pigskin Pork Pick Tailgate Competition!

We’re teaming up with Cyclone Fanatic to bring this weekly home-game tailgate competition.  Here’s how it works!

  1. You fill out the form (see below) by Tuesday to be entered to be chosen as the Pork Pick Tailgater of the Week!
  2. If you are chosen, we will contact you on Wednesday or Thursday of that week.
  3. Chris Williams with Cyclone Fanatic and Iowa Pork representatives will join you at your tailgate about 2 1/2 hours prior to kickoff.  We will go live on Facebook, try some of your pork, and chat about tailgating and Cyclone Football!  We will also deliver your prize package, including an Iowa State backpack cooler, pork cash, Cyclone Fanatic swag, and much more!
  4. On the final home game, we will choose a Tailgate Competition Champion!  What’s the winning prize?  A Traeger Grill!!

*Entries are good for the entire season (no need to enter each week).

Week 1 Winner:  Larry & LeAnn Bakker Family, Grundy County.  See the Facebook video.
