Encyclopedia > Cold War (ice hockey)

The Cold War was an ice hockey game played between U.S. college rivals Michigan State University and the University of Michigan on Saturday October 6, 2001. It set the world record for the largest crowd at an ice hockey game.[1] The attendance was so high because instead of hosting the game in East Lansing's Munn Ice Arena, Michigan State decided to set up an ice rink in the middle of the much larger Spartan Stadium, which they filled to 103.4% of capacity. This meant that 74,544[2] packed the Big Ten football stadium to watch the MSU Spartans and the U-M Wolverines skate to a 3-3 tie.[3][4] Two 300-piece marching bands were present on field and the game was internationally televised.
