The Nebraska Cornhuskers play the first of two final road games to close out the 2020-21 men’s basketball season and will be taking on the No. 5/8 Iowa Hawkeyes tonight in Iowa City.
The Hawkeyes lead the all-time series, 21-13 in a series that dates back to 1907. It is UNL’s third-oldest series against a Big Ten foe, as only the Husker’s series with Minnesota and Wisconsin have been around longer. The teams had not met since 1976 before Nebraska joined the Big Ten in 2011-12. The Cornhuskers are 6-9 against the Hawkeyes since joining the Big Ten and the home team has won the last eight meetings dating back to 2016. The Huskers are just 2-17 all-time in Iowa City. Nebraska’s last road win in the series was on Jan. 26, 2012, a 79-73 win in Carver-Hawkeye Arena, which was its first Big Ten road win.
