OMAHA, Nebraska -- The Hawkeyes are the No. 8 seed going into this year's Big Ten Baseball Tournament following a strong finish to the regular season.

Iowa was able to sneak into the tournament as the lowest seed after winning their final two series of the year.

Their predicament means the Hawkeyes will face No. 1 seed Minnesota on Wednesday night. The Golden Gophers are coming off a great season in which they won the Big Ten regular-season conference championship.
