T-Rexes Take The Field In Unforgettable Iowa State Marching Band Performance


University marching bands always need to think outside the box to impress football fans. There’s more involved than the music. The performance needs to be a spectacle of entertainment, from the choreography to the costumes and more.

Iowa State University’s marching band knew exactly what to do to pump up the crowd during an October football game. All it took was the help of a few dinosaurs to pull off this unforgettable half-time performance.

A Forgetful Football Game

Not many people remember Iowa State’s 30-14 victory over West Virginia University in October. The game didn’t become a viral video on social media. Instead, all of the fame went to the marching band.

During the game’s half-time performance, Iowa State’s marching band won the game—and fans’ hearts—by presenting an unforgettable show. Fans probably didn’t expect to see hundreds of people dressed up as dinosaurs run out onto the football field.

Best Tribute Ever

Don’t worry; the dinosaurs were planned. The marching band’s performance was a tribute to Jurassic Park. An ordinary band would have choreographed the marching musicians to form a shape of a dinosaur on the field. But that wasn’t good enough for Iowa State.

Instead, the band brought out hundreds of people dressed up in dinosaur costumes. They danced along to the music and surprised the crowd with an unforgettable show.

Going Viral

It’s not surprising fans recorded the performance and shared it on social media. It didn’t take long for the videos to go viral. Even FOX College Football shared the video on Twitter, seconding everyone’s thoughts that Iowa State’s marching band should be the 2019 Super Bowl halftime performance.


The dinosaurs don’t just love Jurassic Park. The marching band effectively coordinated the dinosaurs to participate in Iowa State’s fight song, and it was the perfect way to finish an impressive performance.
