Football fans can view the trophy, support the American Red Cross and win tickets to the Nov. 27 matchup between Hawkeyes-Cornhuskers.

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (Oct. 26, 2015) — When the Iowa Hawkeyes and the Nebraska Cornhuskers meet in Memorial Stadium on Nov. 27 for the fifth annual Hy-Vee Heroes Game, there will be more than bragging rights at stake. The game will determine which team takes home the coveted Hy-Vee Heroes Game trophy, which currently resides in Lincoln after last year’s 37-34 Nebraska victory.

In anticipation of the 2015 rematch, Hy-Vee stores in Iowa and Nebraska are hosting a Hy-Vee Heroes Game Replica Trophy Tour now through Nov. 21. A replica of the Hy-Vee Heroes trophy will be on display at a different Hy-Vee store each day, where customers also will have the opportunity to register to win four tickets to the game. The trophy will be on display from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at each store.

The Hy-Vee Heroes trophy is more than 30” tall and weighs approximately 50 pounds. Volunteers with the American Red Cross will assist with transporting the trophy from one stop to the next along the tour route.

Again this year, Hy-Vee along with the American Red Cross, the University of Iowa, and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln will use the national stage created by the Hy-Vee Heroes Game to salute individuals and organizations for acts of heroism in their communities. One citizen-hero from each state will be invited to attend the game as a special guest, receive on-field recognition and have his or her name inscribed on the game trophy.
