Photos: Iowa And Illinois Campus Police Are Going Back And Forth On Twitter Ahead Of Saturday's Game

Campus-area police departments trolling each other ahead of football games is officially a thing now. Last weekend, the Gainesville and Oxford's police departments had a fun Twitter spat before the Gators rolled the Rebels at The Swamp. This week, the upstart Iowa Hawkeyes host Illinois for their homecoming game, and the two schools' campus police departments are trading friendly barbs.

Try not to get too heated there, officers.
