THIS BIG HOUSE: About the Video

You've been here before. Michigan Stadium. The Big House. But not like this. On Sept. 4, 2010, the University of Michigan football season kicked off with a special day, formally rededicating the Big House after three years of renovation and expansion.

"This Big House" chronicles the historic day. Directed, written and produced by Michael O'Leary and narrated by Zach McGowan, the video goes behind the scenes on the team bus and in the tunnel pregame while also documenting the Victors Walk, the ribbon-cutting, an inspiring walk to midfield by Brock Mealer, fireworks and, of course, the 30-10 victory over Connecticut.

A University of Michigan graduate and former U-M lacrosse player, O'Leary is two-time Emmy winner and a 2010 College Sports Media Award winner for outstanding feature.
