Today officially is a workday for University of Iowa personnel (who really knows how many are in their offices, however). That means there will be parking challenges for fans attending Iowa's Big Ten opener against Indiana (which the university has designated as a "Blackout" game.)
Here is Iowa's news release on parking areas around Carver-Hawkeye Arena. Hopefully it eases some frustrations:
