Sitting on the NCAA Tournament bubble the Iowa Hawkeyes open the Big Ten baseball tournament tomorrow morning in Omaha against Penn State. The third seeded Hawkeyes are 33-17 and coach Rick Heller believes they still could get into an NCAA regional without winning the tournament.
Heller says the Hawkeyes control their own fate.
The Hawkeyes have boosted their RPI in recent weeks and right now sit in the mid-50s.
Sixth seeded Penn State finished the regular season 25-27 after suffering a three game sweep at the hands of Illinois.
The winner advances to play Thursday at five against the winner of the game between second seeded Purdue and Rutgers all Iowa baseball games will be on 1530AM.
