Iowa players auctioning gear worn in Ohio State upset win to raise money for Children’s Hospital

By Jesse Reed

One of the biggest upsets of the 2017 college football season occurred when Iowa took down mighty Ohio State in early November. That loss was a huge reason why the Buckeyes were on the outside looking in at the College Football Playoff.

Now, two players who helped the Hawkeyes take down their big-school rival are auctioning off the gear they wore in that game to help raise money for the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital.

At the time he posted the following message, Miles Taylor noted the two players had raised $13,000 for the hospital.

Both players are seniors who won’t be back at Iowa next year, so there’s no danger of violating the NCAA’s ridiculous rules here.

Clearly, the Children’s Hospital has left an indelible impression on these two players. It’s been a focal point of the program since the start of the 2017 campaign, as every home game the entire stadium turns toward the kids and cheers them on.
