The Big Ten has released its football schedules for the 2013 and 2014 seasons.

Iowa will meet all five teams — Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Nebraska, and Northwestern — from the its division in both years. The Hawkeyes will also face Ohio State, Wisconsin, and protected rival Purdue in 2013 and 2014. Ohio State, Wisconsin, and Purdue are all part of the other division.

In 2013, Iowa’s nonconference schedule consists of home games with Northern Illinois, Missouri State, and Western Michigan. The Hawkeyes will also meet Iowa State in Ames.

In 2014, Iowa’s nonconference schedule will include home meetings with Northern Iowa, Ball State, and Iowa State before the squad travels to Pittsburgh.

The 2013 and 2014 football seasons are 14 weeks long, which means teams will play 12 games and each school will receive two bye dates during conference play.

“We have a lot of tough football games between now and 2013,” Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz said in a release. “Playing a solid nonconference schedule and eight Big Ten games each year, we know every season will be challenging, no matter who the opponents might be.”
