The Iowa Hawkeyes will be featured twice on ESPN as part of its “Super Tuesday” slate for the 2014-15 college basketball season, which was released by the network Wednesday afternoon.

Both contests are away from Carver-Hawkeye Arena. The first appearance is at 8 p.m. Central on Jan. 20 when Iowa travels to the Kohl Center to face Wisconsin, who is coming off a Final Four appearance last season and will most likely be favorites to win the Big Ten in 2014-15. The Hawkeyes have lost each of their last two games in Madison and have lost three straight overall to the Badgers.

The other “Super Tuesday” contest is March 3 with the Hawkeyes traveling to Assembly Hall to face Indiana in a game set for 6 p.m. Central that evening. Last season, Iowa was scheduled to play at Indiana as part of ESPN’s “Super Tuesday,” but the game was pushed back nine days after a 50-pound piece of metal fell from the Assembly Hall ceiling.

It was also announced earlier in the week that the Hawkeyes’ Big Ten/ACC Challenge contest on Dec. 3 at North Carolina will be televised nationally by ESPN and start at 6:30 p.m. Central. In addition, Iowa will make at least one appearance on ESPN2 during the 2K Classic in November when the Hawkeyes play Texas at Madison Square Garden in New York City on Nov. 20.

The remainder of Iowa’s 2014-15 schedule is expected to be finalized later this month.
