Hawkeyes, Cyclone Team Buses Powered by Homegrown Biodiesel

September 1, 2021 | Joclyn Bushman

Biodiesel is fueling the University of Iowa Hawkeyes and Iowa State University Cyclone team buses throughout the 2021-22 school year. The sponsorship kicks off this weekend with the start of the college football season. It’s courtesy of the Iowa Soybean Association (ISA), powered by the soybean checkoff, with support from the Iowa Biodiesel Board (IBB). The Hawkeyes and Cyclone team buses will travel more than 125,000 miles during the upcoming year, creating additional demand for soybeans and benefiting the environment, too.
