The 2013-14 Cy-Hawk Series between Iowa State and University of Iowa athletics teams takes a big step forward next week, with three events scheduled in Ames. After six head-to-head competitions, Iowa narrowly leads the series 7-6 (a football win earns 3 points).

On Thursday, Dec. 12, the women's basketball teams will play in Hilton Coliseum. Game time is 7 p.m.; tickets are $12 (reserved) or $10 (general admission), with half-price youth tickets. The game will be streamed live on

On Friday, Dec. 13, the women's swim teams will have a dual meet in the Beyer pool. The first event starts at 6 p.m. and admission is free. At 8:30 that evening, the men's basketball teams will square off in Hilton. The game is sold out, but will be televised on ESPNU.

The gymnastics team will host Iowa on March 7 at Hilton. The final intrastate competition is softball; that game will be played in late April at the Cyclone Sports Complex.
