Road woes go on forever for Hawkeyes

For the Iowa men's basketball team, Saturday was another day on the road in the Big Ten, another lump on the head.

The Hawkeyes' 64-60 loss at Nebraska was brutal, to say the least. You don't blow a 19-point lead against a mediocre opponent. But they did.

That defeat dropped Iowa to 2-5 in Big Ten road games this season with trips remaining to Wisconsin Wednesday night, then Penn State, Nebraska and Indiana. Everyone who sees a sweep of those four coming, stand on your head.

It's been a long time since Iowa was a good road team. While the Hawkeyes were 11-5 in the Big Ten in 2005-2006, they were only 3-5 on the road. That, and last season's team, were the only Iowa clubs to win as many as three conference road games since 2003-2004, when the team went 4-4 on the road. The last Iowa club to have a winning Big Ten road mark was the 1997-1998 Hawkeyes, who were 5-3.

Here are Iowa's Big Ten road records since 1997-1998:

2012-2013: 2-6
