UPDATE: The University of Iowa Athletics Department announced Saturday that it will host a free watch party on Sunday at Carver-Hawkeye Arena for its national championship game against LSU.
The plan is the same as what was preempted by weather on Friday, but the time is not. The party gets started at 1:30 p.m., an hour before the tip against the Tigers in Dallas.

Iowa (31-6) advanced to the program’s first national championship game with wins over Southeastern Louisiana and Georgia in Iowa City; Colorado and Louisville in Seattle; and previously unbeaten, top-ranked South Carolina in Dallas.
