Hosts, Mike Hall and Brock Vereen, will be joined by a couple of Indiana Athletics greats throughout the show. Olympic gold medalist and eight-time NCAA swimming champion Lily King and Indiana football All-American Anthony Thompson will be in attendance, along with social media personality Joey Mulinaro.  

This is the first time the “BTN Tailgate Show” has been in Bloomington since Sept. 21, 2019, when Indiana took on and eventually beat the University of Connecticut, 38-3.  

The Hoosiers come into their matchup with the Hilltoppers as a 6.5-point favorite. The game will kick off at noon Saturday and air on BTN.
