Iowa FB, hoops to appear on BTN’s Greatest Games

December 18, 2008

    The Big Ten Network routinely airs some of the Big Ten’s greatest games (read greatest victories against other conferences or really good in-conference games). Iowa will take part in a few of those in coming months.
   On Dec. 30, the BTN will re-air the 2005 Capital One Bowl featuring Iowa and Louisiana State, ending with a 30-25 Iowa win. The 3-hour telecast airs at 10 p.m.
   Iowa’s 1987 NCAA Sweet 16 double-overtime victory over Oklahoma will air on the Big Ten Network at 7 p.m. Feb. 24. Iowa’s Kevin Gamble hit a shot from the top of the key with one second left to lift the Hawkeyes to the Elite Eight in Seattle.
   The network will air the 2004 double-overtime Iowa win at Indiana. Jeff Horner’s basket from the lane with two seconds left in the second overtime provided Iowa’s winning margin over the Hoosiers. That game re-airs at 7 p.m. Feb. 3.
   The network also will re-air Iowa’s 75-74 overtime loss in 2005 at Northwestern at 10 a.m. Feb. 28.
