The Iowa women's basketball team is hitting the road for the Big Ten/ACC Challenge. 

The Hawkeyes will play at Duke and legendry Cameron Indoor Stadium on Dec. 2, the leagues announced Tuesday afternoon. Tip time and television info will be released at a late date. 

It's an intriguing matchup for a number of reasons. One, what should be a preseason top-15 Iowa squad will get a chance at a quality road win. Two, the Blue Devils are a bit of an unknown right now, having played just four games last season before opting out amid COVID-19 concerns.  

Duke and Iowa have met just one other time. The Blue Devils picked up a 71-47 win over the Hawkeyes on Dec. 4, 2008. That game was also in Cameron Indoor Stadium as part of the Big Ten/ACC Challenge.
