The Iowa baseball team will head to West Lafayette, Ind., for its final regular-season series from today through Saturday to take on Purdue.

With a win tonight, Iowa would clinch its first Big Ten Tournament berth since the 2010 season.

“A lot of times when you get through finals and school is over, it’s a big sigh of relief for the guys,” Heller said. “You can just go play baseball for a couple weeks, so we’re all looking forward to it.”

Iowa will go with a somewhat heavy pitching rotation this weekend in West Lafayette. Sophomore Blake Hickman will start today’s game, with normal Saturday starter Sasha Keubel taking the mound for Game Two on Friday.

Saturday’s starter is still undetermined.

The Hawkeyes lead the all-time series over Purdue, 91-66-1, with the Hawks having won three of the last four series.
