Iowa Hawkeyes 2021: News, Schedule, Roster, Scores, Injury Report

The Iowa Hawkeyes compete in NCAA Men?s Basketball as a part of the Big Ten Conference. Some notable opponents from the conference include Michigan, Ohio State, and Wisconsin. They were founded in 1901.

The name Hawkeyes originates from James Fenimore Cooper?s fictional novel called The Last of the Mohicans, which had a character called Hawkeye. 12 years after the book was released, the state of Iowa acquired the name, thanks to the efforts of Judge David Rorer and James G. Edwards.

Their logo is a sideways-facing hawk, which has been used since 1979. The first logo was introduced back in 1953, which featured a hawk that donned a helmet and held a banner that said Hawkeyes.
