Iowa (7-8, 1-3) continues their Big Ten season this weekend as they host Michigan (11-3, 4-0) on Friday night and then Michigan State (11-3, 2-2) on Sunday. The match against Michigan will be their annual Dig Pink match in support of breast cancer. If you can make either match, they would love to see you at Carver.

Last week Iowa fell to two top ten teams as they lost to #7 Minnesota at home three sets to one and then dropped three straight sets to #5 Penn State on the road.
