No increase to Hawkeye season ticket prices for 2017

TAMPA, Fla. – A general-public season ticket for Iowa football games will be $405 for the seven-game 2017 schedule, same as it was this season, the university announced prior to Monday's Outback Bowl.

Iowa's offense huddles up during the Hawkeyes' game against Iowa State at Kinnick Stadium on Saturday, Sept. 10, 2016.

Faculty/staff prices will be steady at $335, and students are $150 for the home schedule that includes five 2016 postseason participants.

While big-game draws Iowa State, Wisconsin, Michigan and Nebraska fall off the schedule, two others come aboard: Penn State (Sept. 23) and Ohio State (Nov. 4).

The Hawkeyes' other home games: Wyoming (Sept. 2), North Texas (Sept. 16), Illinois (Oct. 7), Minnesota (Oct. 28) and Purdue (Nov. 18).

The season-ticket renewal process will begin online Tuesday, the UI announced, with paper applications being mailed Feb. 1. The deadline for renewals is March 31.

One other wrinkle: Ticket holders in the North End Zone will not be affected for the 2017 season, but will be in 2018 by the planned renovation project. For more information, visit
