AMES, Iowa -- Iowa State athletics director Jamie Pollard, Cyclone men's basketball coach Greg McDermott, head women's basketball coach Bill Fennelly and wrestling head coach Cael Sanderson were up early -- real early. The ISU quartet joined thousands of Cyclone fans and yes, a few Hawks Saturday before the sun was up in the student tailgate areas near Jack Trice Stadium. The group of Iowa State athletics leaders passed out McDonalds' breakfasts and coveted hot coffee to students groups that had started tailgating for Saturday's football game between Iowa State and Iowa before 4:30 a.m. The breakfasts were made available by former Iowa State placekicker Ty Stewart. The Hy-Vee Cy-Hawk Series game starts at 12:30 p.m.

"It was great mixing with the fans," Sanderson said. "They consumed all the food. We are grateful that Ty Stewart was willing to do this."

The Cyclone group spent nearly an hour going through the tailgate area, talking to fans and handing out the McDonald's meals. Fans had arrived in RV's, rebuilt old school buses, cars, jeeps, campers and top-of-the-line luxury buses. Some fans even had satellite dishes to watch a wide variety of games from across the country.
