Season Opener to be Televised on Big Ten Network
March 2, 2009
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - The Indiana football team's season opener against Eastern Kentucky will be televised on the Big Ten Network. IU and EKU will kick off at 8 p.m. ET on Thursday, Sept. 3.
It marks the first Thursday game in Memorial Stadium's history and the first-ever meeting between the two teams. The last time the Hoosiers played on a Thursday came back on Sept. 6, 2001, in their season opener at North Carolina State.
"I think it will be a special treat for our fans to open our season and our renovated stadium on the Thursday night before Labor Day weekend," Indiana University Vice President and Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Fred Glass said. "Hopefully, it will not only help our attendance versus a game in the middle of the holiday weekend, but it will be a great kickoff for a new football tradition in our new stadium."
