    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - The Big Ten Network's "Big Ten Football Tour" headed to Bloomington on Monday for an inside look at Indiana's football practice. The 90-minute show will air at 10 p.m. ET on Monday and will feature a true, behind-the-scenes look at individual and team drills and interviews with head coach Bill Lynch, offensive coordinator Matt Canada, co-defensive coordinator Brian George and Hoosier players Ben Chappell, Ray Fisher, Jammie Kirlew, Greg Middleton and Bryan Payton.

    Dave Revsine, Gerry DiNardo and Howard Griffith host the show, which will provide on-the-field analysis of IU's top newcomers, rising stars, important position battles and schedule. Coach Lynch and Coach Canada wore a wireless microphone during practice to give fans another perspective on the Hoosiers' preparation for the season.

    The Big Ten Network tour bus, branded with logos and air times for the network's "Four Pack," a quartet of new football shows that debut in September, will be parked outside Memorial Stadium. The shows include Breakdown (Tuesdays, 10 p.m. ET), Sites & Sounds (Wednesdays, 10 p.m.), Behind the Schemes (Thursdays, 10 p.m.) and Big Ten Football and Beyond (Fridays, 10 p.m.).

    Hoosier fans will have a chance to win football tickets and other Big Ten Network prizes by getting updates through the network's Facebook page and Twitter feed.

     

     

    Following the 90-minute special, the network will televise the 2007 Old Oaken Bucket battle between Indiana and Purdue at 11:30 p.m. as part of "The Big Ten's Greatest Games" series. Austin Starr made a 49-yard field goal with 30 seconds left to lift Indiana to an emotional 27-24 victory. The win gave the Hoosiers the Old Oaken Bucket for the first time since 2001 and secured a spot in the Insight Bowl, IU's first bowl appearance since 1993. Bill Lynch became the first Hoosier coach to lead his team to a bowl game in his first season.

    Replays of the "Big Ten Football Tour" from Bloomington will air on Tuesday, Aug. 18, at 1:30 a.m., 7:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.

    The Big Ten Network also will produce a separate 30-minute football preview show for the Hoosiers, which will air at 10:30 p.m. ET on Friday, Aug. 28.
