At every Michigan football
game, the announcer tells fans that
they are part of the largest crowd
watching a college football game in
the country.
And on Nov. 22, 2003, fans were
part of the largest crowd in the his-
tory of not just the'Big House but of
college football history.
A record 112,118 people filled the
stadium to watch the game, the
100th meeting between the Michi-
gan Wolverines and the Ohio State
Buckeyes. Michigan beat Ohio State
35-21, ending its run at the National
Championship.
The game secured a Big Ten
Championship for Michigan and
sent the Wolverines to the Rose
Bowl.
It also put a stop to the Buck-
eyes' two-game win streak against
Micligan.
Since that game, Michigan has
lost three straight to the Buckeyes
Individual performances by run-

ning back Chris Perry and quarter-
back John Navarre helped secure
a Wolverine victory. Perry led the
team with two touchdowns and
seven catches for 130 yards.
In that game, Navarre tied
the record for career touchdown
passes formerly held by Elvis
Grbac. It was broken by Chad
Henne two weeks ago against
Northwestern.
The energy at the game was
clearly contagious. After the game
ended, thousands of fans stormed
the field in excitement.
They "gave high-fives to players,
posed for TV cameras and hugged
each other on the Michigan 'M'
at midfield," The Michigan Daily
reported at the time.
One might wonder how the game
had such a large attendance when
the actual capacity of the Big House
is 107,501 people - almost 5,000
fewer than went through the turn-
stiles on Nov. 22, 2003.

In fact, most games - the game 'K
against Eastern Michigan last week T a
was an exception - have official
attendances of more than that num-
ber because the total turnstile count
includes everyone who enters the G E
stadium, not just ticketed fans.
That total includes both teams,
coaching staff, marching bands,
ushers, vendors, cameramen, police
officers and other officials.
That guy wearing the red hat
who stands on the field during end-
less television timeouts? He counts
too.
The 2003 game was so pivotal
that it filled every seat in the sta-
dium. The extra press and staff on
hand for the decisive game likely
helped tip the balance.
Want to see the record broken,
again? Go' to the Michigan-Ohio
State game at Michigan Stadium A man holds up a sign at the 2003 Michigan-Ohio State
on Nov. 17 and you might have a game, which had the highest attendance of any game in
chance. college football history. Michigan won 35-21. Since then,
KAREY QUARTON Michigan has lost three straight times.
