Everything you need to know about the Michigan State vs. Iowa online live stream and TV broadcast, as well as game notes and prediction.
The Michigan State Spartans will hit the road to visit the Iowa Hawkeyes in Carver-Hawkeye Arena on Tuesday night.
It’ll be the first test on the road for the No. 1-ranked Spartans without their star player, Denzel Valentine, who’s out with a knee injury.
Michigan State narrowly beat Oakland in overtime last week to stay unbeaten, 99-93, but let’s see how Sparty does against a tough Iowa squad on its home floor.
The Hawkeyes have bounced back nicely since losing to Iowa State almost three weeks ago. They’ve beaten Drake and Tennessee Tech to improve to 9-3. If there was ever a time for Iowa to go up against the nation’s top team, it’s now.

This could easily go into overtime — especially with the game being in Iowa City. We don’t know how Michigan State is going to handle playing on the road without Valentine. The Spartans should rely on Forbes once again to bury some triples. The Hawkeyes will pull down some rebounds, but Harris will do enough damage in the scoring column to help the Spartans win on the road. It could very easily be a close one though.
