The schedule for the 2015 Big Ten/ACC Challenge was released on Wednesday, and the Hawkeyes will matchup with the Florida State Seminoles.

The game will be played at Carver–Hawkeye Arena on Wednesday, December 2.

It will only be the second time these two teams have met in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge. The Seminoles were able to defeat the Hawkeyes, 80-67, back in 2002.

“We’re excited to have the opportunity to host Florida State, an extremely talented and skilled basketball team, in this year’s Big Ten/ACC Challenge,” said UI head coach Fran McCaffery. “Leonard Hamilton has created a winning culture at Florida State and returns nearly its entire roster from last year. This will be another good test for our basketball team and believe it will be an exciting game for our students and fans to experience at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.”

Iowa will be returning four starters from their 2014-15 squad, which finished 22-12 and lost to Gonzaga in the third-round of the NCAA Tournament.
