The seats are a little hard and you might be a little sore by the end of it so suggest to bring a seat cushion. View seems pretty good from most areas. Also, if you are using game day parking be prepared for a bit...More

Big 10 Football at it's finest (not the team 😁). The stadium was recently renovated. It's much easier to get around. However, it's still difficult to get from one part of the stadium to another. Some parts of the stadium do not have elevators. Very...More

No tours, just open to the public for events. Check with the University Athlete office there are events that you can attend that don't have the crowds!
