In past years the Jr Cyclone club has invited kids down to the field to form the tunnel. Which game is that this year? I always thought it was the family day game, but I could not find any info on it. I don't want to be in our seats and then see this is the game and have the kids mad at me the entire time.

They weren't able to do it this year with the new entrance for the team. I found this in e-mail from the Jr CyclonemClub earlier this fall:
PS As you all know, the Cyclone football team is now housed in the shiny-new Bergstrom Football Complex. Which means their entrance into the stadium will be through their new tunnel leading them from the complex to the west ramp and onto the field. This also means that we are longer able to have our exclusive Jr. Cyclone Club field access prior to kick-off at a home game any longer. Due to the Cyclone’s new team entrance from the northwest – and the visiting team’s new entrance onto the field from now the northeast (and factor in both teams crisscrossing to their respective sidelines), it is now logistically impossible to make a Jr. Cyclone Club “tunnel” to greet our Cyclones and then exit the field in a timely fashion before a penalty delay. We’ve exhausted all ideas and efforts at this time for a Plan B that would work. Bummer, I know.
Stupid athletic department now they are jaming it to the kids. That is a load of crap they have exhausted all of their options, thats just there way of saying were not doing this anymore.... Really dumb move by the athletic department, that expiernece going onto the field sticks in a kids memory for years. Robbing the parents and the kids of priceless memories... Im gonna stop now because i am upset with this whole program today everythig they do or say makes me tick. Sorry for any typos im on my phone.
