Iowa players and coaches have items stolen out of locker room during rivalry game

Iowa won the game and the Cy-Hawk trophy but lost some personal possessions as the Hawkeyes left Ames with a 27-21 win.

Iowa’s football locker room was broken into and items were stolen during the Hawkeyes’ game with in-state rival Iowa State at Jack Trice Stadium on Saturday, The Des Moines Register reported on Sunday.

Iowa State University Police Chief Jerry Stewart, through a department spokesperson, said: "It involved personal property from the locker room and remains under investigation."

Iowa State police said the police report would not be available until at least Monday. No other details were provided.

ISU’s athletic department controls the facilities and utilizes a security firm to keep it secure. Neither athletic director from either school could be reached for comment.

Iowa assistant coach Levar Woods was one of the victims and tweeted the following:

“Sorry to anyone that tried to call/text me last night w/o a response, but my phone came up missing from the ISU locker room after the game.”
