Disaster relief to be collected at Iowa-ISU game

Donations to aid the victims of Tuesday's terrorist attacks will be collected at Saturday's University of Iowa-Iowa State University football game at Jack Trice Stadium.

In a joint statement, UI President Mary Sue Coleman and ISU President Gregory Geoffroy said: "Saturday's game is an opportunity for all of us to come together to support the victims of Tuesday's tragedy and their families, to support our country and to support one another."

Contributions will be collected throughout the stadium, including all the gates, and given to the American Red Cross.

Gov. Thomas Vilsack will attend the game. Vilsack will make brief comments during the pre-game. He will then lead a moment of silence prior to the playing of the National Anthem.
