Nebraska-Iowa stakes get even higher: Which state has the greatest Cedar Rapids?

Redditor boSSSauc3

There are three Cedar Rapidses in the entire world. Two are at stake in the Big Ten's most heroic rivalry.

The above item, posted on r/cfb under the headline "My cousin and his fiancé are big football fans, both from Cedar Rapids," highlights the depths of this delicious and intense rivalry. With more than one year of Black Friday Heroes Trophy action in the books, that's a whole lot of deliciousness and intensity.

There are two towns named Cedar Rapids, with one each claimed by Nebraska and Iowa. The really amazing (AMAZING) part? Wisconsin has a Cedar Rapids, too (population 931). There are no other Cedar Rapids anywhere in the world, according to Wikipedia. The Big Ten has every Cedar Rapids ever, other than the presumed 2027 Auburn freshman of the same name.

Let's settle this in the streets. There do not appear to be any Cedar Rapids, Nebraska rappers, but any talk of Cedar Rapids means turning the mic for a moment to Notti Boy himself:

Full disclosure: I have been to the Iowa Cedar Rapids. It is very cold.
