AP sources: Iowa plans to name Kinnick Stadium field for Slater

Slater played for Iowa from 1918-1921. In 2019, the UI unveiled a sculpture of the two-time All-American on the north end of Kinnick Stadium. The relief depicts Slater’s famous block against Notre Dame in 1921. In 1972, then-UI  president Willard Boyd proposed renaming Iowa Stadium “Kinnick-Slater Stadium” after Slater and Nile Kinnick, but the university decided to name it after Kinnick alone. Instead, the university named the residence hall closest to the stadium Slater Hall in his honor.
