College basketball fans in Iowa are in for a treat this winter as the Big Four Classic is announced.
The event will feature a double-header involving the men’s basketball teams from the University of Iowa, Iowa State University, Drake University, and the University of Northern Iowa. It’s been scheduled for December 12th at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines.
“We are proud to host these four outstanding men’s college basketball teams at Wells Fargo Arena. The Big Four Classic will bring friends of the institutions and fans of their teams from across the state to Des Moines for an exciting event the entire Iowa sports community will enjoy,” said Greg Edwards, president and CEO of the Greater Des Moines Convention and Visitors Bureau.
The games will be played back to back, with Iowa State taking on Drake and Iowa facing UNI. The game times haven’t been announced, but an equal amount of tickets will be available to each school and will be good for both games.
