MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) - Iowa will host Middle Tennessee in a 2019 game that will mark the first meeting ever between these two programs.

The schools announced Tuesday that Middle Tennessee would play at Iowa on Sept. 28, 2019. Middle Tennessee officials said the school will receive $1.55 million for making the trip to Iowa.

Middle Tennessee has played Big Ten teams six times in its history. The Blue Raiders have faced Illinois three times, Minnesota twice and Purdue once. Middle Tennessee is playing Minnesota again this season.

The Blue Raiders already had scheduled a Sept. 14 home date with Duke in 2019. Two more nonconference games will be announced later.
