IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Fans can get their final Hawkeye fix of the summer on Thursday by tuning into the Big Ten Network for the final "Iowa Day". Round-the-clock coverage begins at 7 a.m. (CT).

The network is scheduled to rebroadcast five Iowa football and two men's basketball games to go along with Big Ten Icon coverage.

The day begins with a pair of Hawkeye football contests. At 7 a.m. (CT), Iowa's 30-27 victory over Michigan from the 2003 season will be broadcast followed by last season's 31-27 win over Pittsburgh, which featured the biggest comeback in school history.

At 11 a.m., the BTN will air the Big Ten Icon series featuring Dan Gable before broadcasting the UI football team's 31-28 victory over Purdue. The back-and-forth game featured Dallas Clark's 95-yard touchdown reception.

The network will go into the vault at 1:30 p.m. when it airs the UI men's basketball team's 1983 victory over Indiana. The Hawkeyes edged the Hoosiers, 58-57.

At 3:30 p.m., the Nile Kinnick Big Ten Icon series will be shown, followed by two of the Big Ten's Greatest Games -- the 42-35 victory over Penn State on Sept. 28, 2002, and the 24-23 win at 10th-ranked Michigan during the 1990 season.

Fans can cap off the day by watching Jeff Horner, Adam Haluska, Greg Brunner and company down Michigan State, 71-69, in the 2005 Big Ten Tournament.
