Be ready for all Kurt Warner all the time next week on the major sports television networks.
The NFL Network is broadcasting 55 hours of live coverage from Super Bowl XLIII in Tampa Bay. The network is airing both of Warner’s Super Bowl appearances, with his MVP effort against Tennessee as a member of the St. Louis Rams in 2000 running Monday night. The network is broadcasting New England’s upset of St. Louis in Super Bowl XXXVI on Tuesday.
If you need a Warner fix before the big one, here’s an NFL Network video of an interview featuring the Cedar Rapids native with former teammate and now network analyst Marshall Faulk.
The Big Ten Network will air a feature on Iowa freshman Matt Gatens, son of former Hawkeye Mike Gatens, at 4:30 p.m. Saturday as part of its Big Ten Tip-Off Show. Matt Gatens, an Iowa City native, leads Iowa in scoring at 10.9 points a game. The show leads into Iowa’s road game at Penn State, which begins at 5 p.m.
