The Iowa sports marketing announced it would designate three 2011 home football games as "Color Games" on Tuesday, according to a release.

The Hawkeyes' Sept. 17 game against Pittsburgh — the second home game of the season — has been dubbed "Be Bold, Wear Gold" day. Fans will be expected to wear gold or yellow apparel as Iowa takes the field at 11 a.m. on ESPN or ESPN2.

Iowa's Oct. 15 showdown with Northwestern will be the Hawkeyes' second "Black and Gold Spirit Game." In a recreation of last year's stripe game against Penn State, fans in even-numbered sections should wear gold, and those in odd-numbered sections should wear black. The game against the Wildcats, who have beaten Iowa the past three years, will be broadcast to a national TV audience on the Big Ten Network in prime time.

Finally, Iowa's home finale against Michigan State on Nov. 12 will serve as the team's annual Blackout Game. Iowa supporters should wear all-black clothing to the game; kickoff time has yet to be determined.
