    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Indiana's game against Minnesota on Saturday will air on the Big Ten Network on DIRECTV's channel 218. Kickoff is set for noon EDT at Memorial Stadium.

    Michael Crispino will handle play-by-play duties and he will be joined by analyst Chris Martin and sideline reporter Marshall Harris. The game can also be heard on the statewide IU Radio Network with Don Fischer (play-by-play), Pete Compise (analyst) and Joe Smith (pre-game, halftime and post-game) on the call.

    Game times are predicated on the Big Ten Conference television agreement with ABC, ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPN Plus and are often not announced until 12 days before kickoff.

    Last Time Out
    Indiana racked up nearly 400 yards of offense on its way to a 38-20 win over Iowa at Kinnick Stadium on Sept. 29. The Hoosiers earned their first Big Ten win of the season, their first victory in Iowa City since 1999, and their biggest win at Iowa since a 52-20 triumph back in 1945. IU also reached the end zone five times on a defense that had allowed just two scores through its first four games.

    Sophomore quarterback Kellen Lewis ended up with a career-high 323 yards passing and three touchdowns in the game, while junior wide receiver James Hardy had four catches for 113 yards and a touchdown. Senior fullback Josiah Sears only had five carries for 13 yards but found the end zone on two of those carries.

    The IU defense was equally as impressive, registering a school record-tying nine sacks in the game. Iowa allowed just 11 through its first four contests. Sophomore defensive end Jammie Kirlew had a career-high 3.5 sacks and sophomore defensive end Greg Middleton added 2.5 sacks.
