IOWA CITY, Ia. — It's nice to see a normal Iowa baseball schedule again.

After a Big Ten-only 2021 campaign, the Hawkeyes are playing a normal slate in 2022. That schedule was released Thursday and features multiple tough non-conference trips, several key road Big Ten series and one potentially large weekend to end the regular season.
