Iowa is going to its first Rose Bowl in 25 years, and it's safe to say Hawkeye fans are excitedIowa fans flooded Indianapolis in previously unseen levels for the Big Ten Championship game, and given that crowd, ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit predicted that there would be at least 60,000 Iowa fans in Pasadena.

Unsurprisingly, the Rose Bowl is the hottest ticket in college football right now.

A lot of Iowa fans were looking for tickets on StubHub, to the point where the "get-in" price for the Rose Bowl the day after the matchup was announced was three-and-a-half times the amount of any other New Year's Six or College Football Playoff bowl.

Bowl Matchup Cheapest Tickets On StubHub
Rose Iowa vs. Stanford $518
Orange (Playoff) Clemson vs. Oklahoma $147
Sugar Ole Miss vs. Oklahoma State $129
Fiesta Ohio State vs. Notre Dame $124
Cotton (Playoff) Alabama vs. Michigan State $66 (standing room), $166 (seats)
Peach Florida State vs. Houston $25

Iowa fans have done this before. There were an estimated 40,000 to 50,000 Hawkeye fans in attendance for the 2003 Orange Bowl against USC.
