Thursday night at 7 p.m. ET on Tailgate 48 presented by Omaha Steaks our crew brings you the sights and sounds from their tailgate weekend at Iowa before and during the game against Michigan. In addition to their usual coverage of the fans before the game and the game itself, this week our hosts Julie Alexandria and Jason Fisher serve up a number of great moments.

They include:

  • Julie meets Tim Dwight, who starred in track and football at Iowa.
  • Jason explores the student Union and the student-run radio station, then test Iowa fans with football trivia questions.
  • Julie visits one of the cafeterias and talks with students about dorm life.
  • Jaime Printy, star shooting guard for Iowa's women's basketball team, plays H-A-W-K-S with Jason during their interview.
  • Jason interviews Kirk Ferentz the day before the big game against Michigan.
  • Julie visits with the Hawkeyes cheerleading team and tries a stunt or two with them to see if she has what it takes.
  • Jason talks to legendary Hawkeyes wrestling coach Dan Gable.
