ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Fans in the record crowd of 114,804 will have a chance to prove they were present at the Big House for this past Saturday's (Sept. 10) first University of Michigan football night game at Michigan Stadium by visiting the Under the Lights FanCam at http://mgoblue.com/fancam.
The Wolverines won the game against Notre Dame, 35-31, in a thrilling finish that saw three touchdowns in the game's final 1:12, including Michigan's winning score with two seconds remaining.
A 360-degree, high-definition camera captured Michigan Stadium in its entirety during the Desmond Howard pregame ceremony, and fans can "step inside" the image of the Big House and look around, as if they were standing at midfield for a frozen moment of time prior to kickoff of the highly anticipated game.
The resolution of 5 billion pixels is so high that fans can zoom in to find themselves or friends in their seats, "tag" themselves in the photo, and share via email, Facebook and Twitter.
Fans can enter to win tickets to Michigan vs. Ohio State (Nov. 26) or Michigan vs. Nebraska (Nov. 19) by participating in a contest inside the Fancam. There will be three winners chosen for each ticket giveaway.
The University of Michigan is the first college football program in the United States to utilize this cutting-edge technology and offer this interactive photo to its fans and season ticket holders.
