edwards. this is local 5 news at 5, we are iowa." "we haven't been to the rose bowl now for 25 years, so, it'd be great to go. i'm sure a lot of people will find some money under their mattress and find a plane ticket out there." stephanie: money under
the mattresses-- that's what it might take. but the most die-hard iowa fans will make it happen. jack: after losing in the big ten championship to michigan state and missing out on a playoff spot, the hawkeyes were matched up against pac-12 champion stanford in the rose bowl. it's iowa's first trip to pasadena since 1991. jack: it's the school's 6th rose bowl appearance. iowa is 2-3 all- time in the rose bowl, with its last win coming in 1959. it'll also mark the third time
coached in the rose bowl, though his first as a head coach. the two games where he was an assistant coach, in the 1980s, iowa lost. jack: it's fun for hawks fans to witness history. but it's definitely going to cost you. stephanie: local five's lucas casey shows us just how much, from the digital media center. "i don't know about you, but since sunday afternoon, my social media
feeds have been blowing up with my hawkeye fan friends making plans to head to the rose bowl in pasadena, california. i wouldn't be surprised turned to shock by now, shock because of the price it's going to and back. let's take a look, i went to travelocity this afternoon to look at some prices for round trip airfare. this is des moines to lax and round trip tickets, for game returning the 1145 dolloars - that's the lowest price could find today. next, you fly out, you have to have a place to stay. all of the five-star hotel rooms are already booked around the rose bowl, a few budget options left. you're going to
between 200 and 400 dollars a night depending on how close you want to stay to the rose bowl and how easily you want to be able to get to and from the game. but now the big ticket item, the ticket itself. the university of iowa has a ticket allotment, but those will go to season ticket holders and big donors first, the rest of us have to go out on the open market. i'm looking at stub hub here, the minimum price i could find today - 600 dollars and that's upper deck. if you want to get a little closer to the action, you're looking at 1750, and this first section of the bowl, minimum starting price, 2500 dollars as of today. in summary, about 12000 for airfare, at least 1000 dollars based on 200 or 300 a night for a hotel, 800 plus for a ticket, you're looking at at least 3,000 dollars per person to head out to the rose bowl and return, but i'm guessing that's a price most hawk fans are willing to pay. in the digital media
temperatures will stay above freezing for the metro each night this week, but some refreezing could occur in more northern locations. tuesday will have a lot of clouds in the sky with maybe a
few sprinkles or light showers possible later in the afternoon or early evening. the sun returns wednesday and thursday with temps in
thursday as a strong system travels through mn,
but again no good rain chances are expected here with this system. this weekend will start a cool down for us with some clouds likely. we will have a slight chance for some rain showers, but most of the rain will fall over se iowa this weekend. temperatures will be cooling back into the 30s and 40s this weekend and heading into next week. brad/wxhang (adlib) jack:/ stephanie:
