Cyclone Central Tailgates will be hosted by the ISU Alumni Association before each 2017 home football game at Jack Trice Stadium. Admission is free to everyone. The ISU Alumni Center, 420 Beach Ave. (adjacent to Lots A2/A3), conveniently located right next to Jack Trice Stadium, opens three hours prior to kickoff and closes 30 minutes prior to kickoff of each game.

Cyclone Central is a family-friendly tailgate party in a temperature-controlled environment with indoor bathrooms -- making it the perfect choice, especially on iffy weather days. Cyclones everywhere are invited to celebrate Cyclone football and enjoy giveaways, fun and games, shopping, food and drink, and plenty of entertainment for all ages.
