Sen. Chuck Grassley took to the floor of the United States Senate Monday, Sept. 16, to comment on the Iowa-Iowa State football game from Saturday. His prepared remarks were as follows:
“This weekend, I attended what some call Iowa’s own Super Bowl, the Iowa vs. Iowa State football game.
“I talked with Iowans while tailgating before the game about issues such as ethanol, biodiesel and trade.
“This year the game was in Ames and Iowa State hosted ESPN’s football College Game Day for the first time ever.
“It was an opportunity to show off Iowa State’s campus and celebrate the tradition of the annual Cy-Hawk Game.
“Congratulations to the Iowa Hawkeyes for winning this year’s matchup, but both teams put up a strong fight with the final score being 18 to 17.”
