No. 3-ranked Purdue looks for its first win at Iowa in more than six years as it travels to Iowa City to face the Hawkeyes at noon ET on Saturday. 

Dave Flemming and Dan Dakich will provide the call on ESPN. Larry Clisby and Rob Blackman will handle the radio broadcast on the Purdue Radio Network. Fans can receive in-game updates on Purdue Basketball's official Twitter account (@BoilerBall). 

Purdue is aiming for its 15th straight victory, but will have to come at a facility that has not been kind to the Boilermakers. In each of its last two trips to Carver-Hawkeye Arena, a ranked Boilermakers' squad left in defeat. 

Purdue has allowed 83 points in each of its last three trips to Carver-Hawkeye Arena. Purdue has held 11 consecutive opponents to 69 or fewer points, but faces a challenge against an Iowa team averaging 81.1 points per game. 

Purdue returns home next week for a big game against Michigan on Thursday at Mackey Arena. Tip is set for 7 p.m. ET on ESPN. Purdue will head to Indiana on Sunday, Jan. 28.
