Weekend Watch Guide for Iowa Fans

Hawkeye Insider provides you with the noteworthy sports contests to watch all weekend.

IOWA SPORTS

The Big Ten Wrestling Championships are held this weekend in Carver-Hawkeye Arena in Iowa City on the campus of the University of Iowa. The Hawkeyes and Ohio State shared the crown a year ago, both recording 120 points. Penn State enters the event #1 in the country while Iowa holds at #4, the Buckeyes at #7, Michigan at #8, Rutgers at #10, Nebraska at #12, Illinois at #13, and Minnesota at #16. The Hawkeyes lead all Big Ten programs with 35 team championships and 195 individual titles. 

The men's basketball team tries to stop their 4-game skid when they travel to Ann Arbor at 7 p.m. on BTN. The Big Ten regular season crown is no longer in play after the Hoosiers clinched it outright with their win over Iowa on Tuesday. The Hawkeyes are still battling for a possible opportunity to have a bye in the conference tournament on both Wednesday and Thursday. Michigan State already beat Rutgers and should defeat Ohio State today. Iowa gets that fourth seed for a double-bye if they are able to knock off the Wolverines, Purdue beats Wisconsin, and Indiana to defeat Maryland. In that scenario, the Terrapins get the third seed and the Hawkeyes would be awarded a fourth seed because they would hold tie-breaker scenarios over Wisconsin and Purdue.
