ESPN Broadband, in partnership with the Big Ten, Indiana University and Purdue University, is making the telecast of this Saturday's Indiana vs. Purdue football game available online. This game is not being televised, so the only place to watch will be on ESPN Broadband. ESPN Broadband showcases the fastest, high-quality sports video online and is normally only available to internet users whose high-speed data providers have signed an agreement with ESPN. For this Saturday only, ESPN Broadband is providing a special link which will make the site available for fans of Indiana and Purdue football.
