GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — If you can’t make it to Indiana for the Michigan State-Notre Dame game Saturday, head to downtown Grand Rapids for the next best thing.
WOOD TV8 is teaming up with MSU and Downtown Grand Rapids Inc. to put the big game on the big screen in Ah-Nab-Awen Park.
The watch party starts at 7:15 p.m., with a documentary taking fans back 50 years, when the two teams faced off in the “Game of the Century.”
More than 80,000 people packed Spartan Stadium to watch No. 1 Notre Dame take on No. 2 Michigan State on Nov. 19, 1966. The game’s 10-10 end is considered the most famous tie in college football history.
While No. 12 MSU and No. 18 Notre Dame aren’t ranked as high this year, ESPN says it’s only the fourth time since the 1966 game that both teams have cracked the top 20 nationally.
Kick-off is slated for 7:30 p.m. You can also watch the game at home on WOOD TV8, followed by 24 Hour News 8 at 11 p.m.
