The No. 17 Iowa field-hockey team will head to Ohio this weekend to face No. 12 Ohio State and Ohio University.

Iowa (8-3, 1-2) will take on the Buckeyes (8-5, 2-0) at noon Saturday in Columbus before heading to Athens to square off against the Bobcats (10-2) at 11 a.m. Oct. 9.

The Hawkeyes are coming off two-straight losses to conference rivals. The Black and Gold lost to No. 13 Michigan, 2-0, on Oct. 1 in Ann Arbor, Mich., and fell to No. 6 Penn State, on Sept. 25 in Iowa City.

Iowa is 14-7 in Columbus, 41-13 all-time against the Buckeyes. The Hawkeyes are 1-1 in Athens and 4-1 overall against the Bobcats.

Iowa has six remaining games on its schedule, including five on the road and three against Big Ten competition. Indiana is the last team to visit Iowa City; the Hoosiers will be in town for a game on Oct. 15 at Grant Field.

Saturday's matchup against the Buckeyes will be broadcast on tape delay on the Big Ten Network. The game will be shown at 1 p.m. on Oct. 9.
