Indiana and Virginia will play in prime time on September 10.

Kevin Wilson's first game at Memorial Stadium will be under the lights in week 2 of the 2011 season. The Big Ten Network released its primetime schedule tonight, and the matchup between the Indiana Hoosiers and Virginia Cavaliers will be at night. I am happy with this. IU generally has had relatively strong attendance at early season night games, even though such games generally have been against MAC or FCS competition. Hopefully, a primetime game against an ACC opponent will lead to a nice crowd. IU's blowout loss to a punchless UVa team in Charlottesville in 2009 remains one of the low moments of the last few years, so hopefully the Hoosiers can except some revenge in September.
