The Iowa Hawkeyes will host the Bryant Bulldogs this weekend in their final non-conference game. With the program currently undefeated against opponents outside of the Big Ten, tomorrow provides another chance to move up the rankings.

It's been an injury-plagued start to the season for the Hawkeyes, which includes injuries to Connor McCaffery and Cordell Pemsl. Fortunately enough for head coach Fran McCaffery, the depth on this team allows him to manage his rotation through any absences.

Although Iowa did show flaws against the likes of Wisconsin and Michigan State, it should take care of business tomorrow.

Bryant owns an abysmal 3-7 record, but is coming off a much-needed victory over Dartmouth. The biggest issue for the Bulldogs is the lack of options on offense, specifically off the bench.

The Hawkeyes are averaging 84.1 points per game, meanwhile the Bulldogs generate just 67.8 points per contest.

If you're looking for one player to keep an eye on, look no further than Tyler Cook. The junior forward is averaging 16.7 points and 8.3 rebounds per game, and he constantly presents mismatches for Iowa.

History leans in the Hawkeyes' favor for this showdown, as they have won 58 of their last 62 non-conference home games.

Iowa and Bryant are set to tip off at 8:00 p.m. ET from Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

The game will be on ESPNU with Chuckie Kempf and Tim McCormick on the call.
