Tailgating has a different look this year. Most of us will be tailgating at home while cheering on the Cyclones.

Iowa’s pork producers want to see how you’re making Cyclone tailgating special. We also want to hear about how you’re tailgating with pork—which makes every tailgate special!!!

Be a part of our “PIGSKIN TAILGATE CHALLENGE AT HOME” by sharing your Cyclone tailgating experience and, of course, you have to share how pork was part of that tailgate.

We’re teaming up with Cyclone Fanatic to select a tailgater each week.  Here’s how it works!

  1. Take photos and/or videos of your tailgate and your PORK tailgating specialties.
  2. Fill out and submit the form (see below) by Tuesday following any game.
  3. Tailgaters can enter as many times as they would like, but are only eligible to win once.*
  4. Chris Williams through his Cyclone Fanatic platforms will announce the winner on Wednesday or Thursday following each game.
  5. Iowa Pork Producers Association will contact you to make arrangements for delivering your prize package.
  6. The weekly prize package will include a cooler, Iowa Pork swag, Cyclone Fanatic swag, Pork Cash, a Fareway gift card, and more!!!
  7. At the end of the season, we will select an Overall Winner! The winning prize will be a Traeger grill, Pork Cash, and a Fareway gift card!

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