A two-month fan vote to establish one song permanently etched with “The Wave” instead turned into a request: Let the kids decide.

And they will. Iowa’s weekly kid captains will choose the song that plays as nearly 70,000 fans turn and wave to patients at the UI Children’s Hospital.

“The interest and passion for the Hawkeye Wave cannot be overstated, and the selflessness of the Hawkeye community proved once again why The Wave is the greatest tradition in college sports,” said Peter Matthes, University of Iowa vice president for external relations and senior advisor to the president.
