The University's Board of
Regents will vote today to
approve the leasing of Michigan
Stadium to host the 2013 NHL,
Winter Classic.
The regents will vote in a spe-
cial meeting at 10 a.m. in the
Fleming Administration Build-
ing. A University source con-
firmed to the Daily that the event
would involve leasing thestadium
to the NHL, which would make it
more likely that alcohol will be
permitted to be sold inside Michi-
gan Stadium.
Michigan Athletic Director
Dave Brandon announced early
last month that the University
and the NHL were in discussions,
but no formal agreement had
been reached.
"We have been approached by
.the NHL about utilizing our facil-
ity for the 2013 Winter Classic,"
Brandon said in a Jan. 5 state-
ment. "There are alot of complex
-circumstances that need to be
ironed out before anything moves
forward. We willhave more to say

if/when something materializes."
If approved, the game would
likely feature the Detroit Red
Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs
on Jan. 1, 2013, which would be
