“There are going to be a couple of spots where people will be able to warm up. It will be cold, there’s no doubt about it. But what we’re finding out is people are planning on doing this just as they would for normal tailgate party.”
Madej says despite the bone chilling temperature the athletic department is treating this like any other game at the Big House.
