From University of Iowa sports information:
IOWA CITY, Iowa – The combination of rain that has already fallen and predictions for additional rain will result in at least half of the available football gameday parking on grass surfaces at the University of Iowa's Finkbine Golf Course to not be available for Saturday's football game, the UI Athletics Department announced today.
The UI Athletics Department also noted that it will update the status of the remaining portion of grass parking at Finkbine Golf Course on Friday. Rain is in the forecast for Iowa City for tonight and portions of Thursday and Friday.
Finkbine Golf Course is one of the parking lots on game days that is accessible to fans of the Iowa Hawkeyes who are not members of the National I-Club.
