IOWA CITY, Iowa – The University of Iowa athletic ticket office is missing thousands of dollars from the 2011 football season, a state audit has found.

Over $74,000 is unaccounted for from the Hawkeye Express, a train used by fans to get to Kinnick Stadium on game days.

The investigation, which covered 2005 through to 2013, showed ticket money wasn’t deposited three times in 2011.

During that period, the audit showed ticket proceeds weren’t deposited 31 times within a week of the game as the rules demand.

The report had several recommendations to improve the recording of transactions on game day.

The audit has been passed on to the Iowa Board of Regents, the university’s Department of Public Safety, the Division of Criminal Investigation, the Johnson County Attorney’s Office and the Attorney General’s Office.
