TALKIN' BASEBALL: IOWA VS OHIO STATE RUBBER GAME THREAD

Gregory Shamus

Iowa sports! On TV again!

Another Iowa baseball game on TV?  Yessir.

Iowa dropped game one of their series against Ohio State, 9-4, but rebounded yesterday with a 17-2 #BEATEMDOWN to even up the series at one apiece.  So today's game is to win the series.  Here are the current B1G standings:

TEAM B1G RECORD
1 Indiana 16-2
2 Nebraska 13-5
2 Illinois 13-5
4 Michigan 11-10
5 Minnesota 9-9
6 Iowa 8-9
7 Michigan St 8-10
8 Ohio St 7-10
9 Penn St 5-12
10 Purdue 5-13
11 N'western 5-13

Thanks to results elsewhere (like Penn State's ongoing meltdown), this isn't really a "must win" game for Iowa.  They're already sitting in pretty good shape to land a top-8 spot.  But more wins could help them move up the ladder in the Big Ten -- and likely help them avoid a first round game against Indiana, Nebraska, or Illinois in the Big Ten Tournament, which would seem like a good idea.  Plus, beating Ohio State is always fun.

The game is on BTN at 6 PM Central time.

The usual rules apply.
