2008 Iowa Schedule

While it still has a few TBD's on it, the University of Iowa has released its 2008 baseball schedule.

Iowa will open in the year in Florida in a tournament hosted by Notre Dame. The Hawkeyes follow that with a tournament in Nashville hosted by Vanderbilt. Then, there's a three game set at Missouri State before the Spring Break Tournament in Orlando. Coach Jack Dahm's side finishes the prolonged season opening road trip against Stetson in Deland, Florida.

The Big Ten portion of their slate begins with four at Michigan. Purdue will visit Iowa City the following weekend. It's then at Indiana, home to Northwestern, at Michigan State, home to Minnesota, at Penn State and the conference season concludes with a visit from Ohio State.

The most notable non-conference midweek game is when Nebraska comes to Iowa City April 8.

Kudos to Iowa's Sports Information Department and the baseball staff on making this information available so quickly.
