Big Ten announces television and start time destinations for most of Iowa's 2019-20 men's basketball schedule

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- The Big Ten Conference announced television and start time designations for a majority of the University of Iowa men’s basketball team’s 2019-20 schedule, including all 20 conference games, on Thursday.

The Hawkeyes will be televised a minimum of 16 times on BTN, including the regular season opener against SIU Edwardsville on Friday, Nov. 8. Fox Sports 1 will televise eight Iowa games, while an ESPN Network will carry at least three Hawkeye games in 2019-20.

Only two Iowa games will be streamed on BTN+ this season -- its exhibition game versus Lindsey Wilson College and home contest versus Oral Roberts.

Start times and TV designations for road contests at Iowa State and Syracuse, and the neutral site contest versus Cincinnati in Chicago will be released at a later date.

Iowa returns nine lettermen from last year’s team that won 23 games, advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament, and placed in the first division of the Big Ten.
