The North Campus Tailgate kicked off at 7pm along with the game and by 7:15 over 400 students and faculty had arrived to enjoy food, football, and fun. All Michigan gear-attired attendees showed joy and disgust collectively at the play of the Wolverines who ultimately finished, once again, as the Victors over the Northwestern Wildcats! A wide array of food was enjoyed by all: white bean chili, hot dogs, potato salad, baked beans cooked in molasses, magic cookie bars, Chex mix and hot cider. The North Campus Diag provided a perfect space for the event. Bleachers were set for students to sit. Some brought chairs and blankets for the ground and others tossed around the football in the open field behind the tailgate. The big screen was great for watching anywhere on the Diag. Those who attended had the chance to win t-shirts and there was even a drawing for a football and mini helmet signed by Desmond Howard. In addition, anyone could have grabbed the free giveaways, a maize and blue pom pom and seat cushion. The raffle and giveaways could be found by the DJ tent where music was played during T.V. timeouts and tickets were drawn for prizes. The Tailgate was a success, and of course it was great to see a multitude of students Go North!
Save the date for the next North Campus Tailgate to be held on November 5th!
