The hype for this Saturday's Michigan-Notre Dame night game has been building ever since the announcement was made back in March 2010 that it will be played under the lights. Since then the anticipation has been growing, and an unbelievable amount of fans have expressed their desire to be a part of history.â†µ
Proof of this comes from looking at the demand for tickets. Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon said on Tuesday that another 25,000 or 50,000 tickets could have been sold for this game, and he expects it to shatter attendance records. A crowd of 115,000 fans isn't out of the question.â†µ
When asked about the unbelievable demand for tickets, Brandon said, "The supply-and-demand model is getting blown up here." Despite the biggest crowd in college football history being expected for the game, tickets aren't easy to find, especially tickets at a low price. From Darren Rovell:â†µ
