Iowa's Josh Jackson, Miles Taylor Auctioning Off Uniforms From Ohio State Game For Charity

A pair of Iowa defensive backs are giving back.

Miles Taylor and Josh Jackson both helped the Hawkeyes notch their biggest win of 2017, a 55-24 blowout of No. 3 Ohio State in November.

Now, they're using that game to help raise money for charity. Both Jackson and Taylor are auctioning off their alternate jerseys from the win, along with other equipment.

All proceeds will to to the University of Iowa Children's Hospital.

"Auctioning off my Alternate Black Iowa Jersey, Helmet, and Cleats worn in the win of Ohio State to raise money for the UI Children’s Hospital! All of the money is going to go the hospital.. Its the least we can do. Starts now! Me and @Miles_Taylor19," Jackson tweeted.

The Iowa Children's Hospital, which overlooks Kinnick Stadium, became the focal point of the best new tradition of college football this fall. At the end of the first quarter of every home game, players and fans from both teams would wave to the children in the hospital who were watching.

The tradition even went on the road to the Pinstripe Bowl in New York City.

It's good to see Taylor and Jackson giving back.

The auctioning is already underway on Taylor and Jackson's Twitter.
