Flashback: Watch archived Big Ten football games

Indiana plays at Illinois while Purdue travels to Minnesota and both games air on BTN/BTN2Go this Saturday. Our editors dove into our online archive of football games featuring these same two matchups and found some great old games, including the 2001 game when the Boilermakers and Gophers took it to overtime.

Watch the previous battles listed below on BTN2Go. We’ve also got another great game Iowa and Northwestern, another Week 9 matchup. From the looks of it in the clip in this post, it was rather chilly that day back in 1995.
