Iowa’s final two home games against Purdue (March 1 or 2) and Illinois (March 8 or 9) are television wildcard games. If selected, BTN would broadcast Hawkeye games on March 1 and March 8, while CBS has the rights to March 2 and March 9.
The Hawkeyes’ remaining nine league games are slated to be televised on an ESPN platform or CBS, including eight on ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNU.
