2010 Iowa Schedule

I haven't seen an official announcement, but Iowa has posted their 2010 baseball schedule. The highlight of the Hawkeyes' non-conference slate is a nine game swing through the Lone Star State. Head Coach Jack Dahm's side will open the year with three at Kansas before a four game series with national superpower Texas. After the Longhorn battle, Iowa will visit both UT-San Antonio (two games) and Texas Pan-American (three games).

The home portion of the schedule begins with a three game set with Western Illinois. WIU will also visit Iowa City for a single game just over a week later and the Hawkeyes will visit Western Illinois for a midweek game late in the season.

The Big Ten slate has Iowa opening at Michigan State as well as traveling to Indiana, Michigan and Penn State. Illinois, Minnesota, Ohio State and Purdue will head to Iowa City in 2010.

Sunday, October 04, 2009 To Stream Challenge

College Baseball will be streaming eight games from the Big Ten/Big East Challenge. This, of course, is great news. It's not only a sign of college baseball's expanding coverage, but provides the event and the conference with more exposure, as well.
