Attention Hawkeye fans. “Gameday Live” will be back in action at the 2011 Insight Bowl.
The new and improved format includes team, game, radio and television information, live blog, Gametracker and Twitter feeds. “Gameday Live” is the one-stop-shop for the most passionate Hawkeye fan on game days. Being able to utilize additional social media applications will allow fans to connect with other Hawkeye fans in various platforms throughout the country and world.
The Official Iowa Football Game Day Blog will be live in Tempe for Iowa’s Insight Bowl matchup against Oklahoma.
During the game, staff of the Iowa Athletic Communications Office will be manning the Official Iowa Football Game Day Blog and Twitter (@TheIowaHawkeyes) from the press box to provide up-to-the-minute notes and stats about the game. Also, Hawkeye fans are encouraged to tweet their gameday photos to @TheIowaHawkeyes. Selected photos will get retweeted.
The blog will include pregame videos and in-game photos, while fans have the opportunity to voice their opinion by submitting questions and comments and answering polls. The blog includes numerous features, including prize giveaways every week. Any fan who signs up for a blog e-mail reminder will automatically be registered to win that week’s prize.
The Insight Bowl will be televised nationally on ESPN with Sean McDonough, Matt Millen and Heather Cox calling the action.
A reminder, due to the volume of entries, not everyone’s questions or comments can be posted. The live blog will begin at approximately 8:30 p.m. (CT) and run throughout the game. Click on the link in the middle of the page to join the “Gameday Live” experience on Saturday.
