    The Hoosiers return home after starting Big Ten play with four straight road matches. Indiana hosts No. 60 Iowa on Saturday and No. 39 Minnesota on Sunday, with both matches scheduled for a 1 p.m. ET start. Indiana enters the match with a record of 11-5 overall and 2-2 in conference.

    The Hawkeyes come to the Hoosier state looking for only their sixth victory all time in Bloomington. Indiana leads the all-time series 45-17, although the Hawkeyes have taken the last two meeting, both in Iowa City. Iowa is 10-5 on the year and 2-2 in the Big Ten. Most recently, Iowa defeated Penn State in Iowa City by a 4-3 score.

    Minnesota looks to regain momentum in the series with the Hoosiers. IU has won three of the last four meetings, and the two teams split a pair of battles in 2009 with IU on top in the most recent, a 4-1 win in the Big Ten tournament. Minnesota leads the all-time series 26-40 and hasn't lost to Indiana in consecutive matches since 1974. The Gophers are 9-7 overall and 2-2 in conference play, and they are coming off a 0-7 loss to Ohio State in Minneapolis.

    Indiana fell to No. 15 Illinois on Sunday by a 6-1 tally. The Hoosiers got a singles win from freshman Isade Juneau and a doubles victory at number two.

    Juneau defeated Stephen Hoh in straight sets at number five singles, winning 6-4, 6-3.

    At number two doubles, senior Lachlan Ferguson and freshman Josh MacTaggart took out Hoh and Connor Roth. The two Hoosiers won 8-6.
