2012 BTN Illinois Days are set for June 4, June 26 and July 17
June 4, 2012
The first of three Illinois "School Days" on the Big Ten Network will be on Monday, June 4, featuring 24 hours of Fighting Illini programing.
Included in the 24 hours of Illinois programming will be three episodes of the Big Ten Greatest Games, including the down to the wire basketball game in 1990 versus the Shaquille O'Neal led LSU Tigers and the memorable 1999 second-half comeback win over Tom Brady and then-No. 9 Michigan football.
Also included are the Lou Henson and Red Grange episodes of Big Ten Icons, as well as this year's Big Ten titles for women's soccer and men's gymnastics and two other instant classics from the 2011-12 season - football's 38-35 come-from-behind win over Northwestern and men's basketball's 79-74 win over Ohio State behind Brandon Paul's 43 points.
The other two dates of Illinois-only programming are June 26 and July 17.
