IOWA CITY, Iowa – The University of Iowa women’s basketball team will host Clemson on Wednesday, Dec. 4, in Carver-Hawkeye Arena, as part of the 2019 Big Ten/ACC Challenge. It will mark the first ever meeting between the Hawkeyes and Tigers.
The Big Ten and ACC offices collaborate to determine the challenge schedule each season. The Big Ten and ACC have been among the most competitive conferences on the national women’s basketball landscape for many years, with both conferences sending nine schools to postseason play in 2018-19.
Last year’s challenge once again proved to be among the most competitive in the event’s history, with the ACC edging the Big Ten, 8-6. Iowa is 3-9 all-time in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge.
Game times, as well as television and streaming coverage, for the 2019 Big Ten/ACC Women’s Basketball Challenge will be announced at a later date.
