Iowa Players Auctioning Off Jerseys From Ohio State Game for Iowa Children's Hospital

All of the money raised will go to the Iowa Children's Hospital.

Two Iowa players have said they will auction off their jerseys, cleats and helmets from Iowa's 55-24 win over Ohio State last season and donate the money to the University of Iowa Children's Hospital.

Miles Taylor and Josh Jackson hopped on Twitter Saturday night to announce their plans to auction off the alternate black jerseys from the November upset.

In the win, Taylor and Jackson each had three tackles, but Jackson also had three interceptions of Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett, who tossed four in the game.

Taylor and Jackson are both seniors, so there shouldn't be any NCAA violations for the Hawkeyes to worry about, although you would like to think that with the money going to a hospital, there wouldn't be any issue no matter their eligibility.

The Iowa Children's Hospital has become a part of the newest Hawkeye tradition, in which fans at Kinnick Stadium wave at those watching the game from the hospital's top floor, which has a view overlooking the stadium.
