Big Ten Network's Friday Night Tailgate Heads to Bloomington
Sept. 26, 2008
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Excitement for Big Ten football games starts long before Saturdays and "Friday Night Tailgate Presented By Nissan" lets viewers experience the passion and fervor as Big Ten campuses come alive.
This week, Big Ten Friday Night Tailgate presented by Nissan gets a taste of the local campus flavor at Indiana as the Hoosiers and their fans get ready for Saturday's game against Michigan State. Airing at 8:30pm ET on Friday, the irreverent, off-beat show visits a different Big Ten campus each week to capture the collegiate atmosphere leading up to game day.
IU football players Nick Polk and Marcus Thigpen will participate in the ever-popular "Teammate Game." Indiana students are encouraged to participate in the live segments of this week's show which will take place at the intersection of Kirkwood and Indiana Streets.
The episode of "Friday Night Tailgate" is part of a year-long competition between Big Ten schools. At the conclusion of the football season, one Big Ten school with the best campus atmosphere will be crowned champion.
