Set between the University Hospital complex and a quaint neighborhood wlth charm. Kinnick is a diminutive Camp Randall and a grown-up's Ryan Field. But better than either . Our Daughter and Son-in-law had their wedding reception there in 2015.

Kinnick Stadium is easy to get to and has very good sight lines to view the game. It's set in a quaint neighborhood with pretty good parking options.

We had a very good game day experience overall. We arrived at the tailgating lot early, which is highly recommended because traffic eventually became almost unmanageable. I like that they give you a thick trash bag as you enter. The parking lot supervisor directed us...More

Nice place to watch a game but concourses are crowded and concession line is worse than other Big Ten venues. Left the game with 3 minutes left in the half and barely made it to my seat before 2nd half. Staffing at concession could easily...More

The stadium was nice. We were there as the visitors. The seats we got were under the big scoreboard. The music was terribly loud. So loud that the seats were vibrating. If you go, stay clear of sections 215, 216 and 217 in the south...More

Great signeage and tons of washrooms! Lots of food and vendors in the stands too. Jumbotron makes the game even better, very clean facility.

Every section has its own tunnel, at about row 35. There are 70 rows in the main part of Kinnick. There is a restroom behind each section, alternating male/female. You should never be more than 12 seats from an aisle. That... More

Stage will be in south end zone. If you aren't really tall, I would not buy on field. The best are sections 125-130 and then 107-102. That being said, there is a big screen that will be seen all over stadium. So that is... More
