The Big House is the biggest stadium in the USA. It’s in Ann Arbor, Michigan. It’s the University of Michigan Wolverine’s stadium. Michigan Wolverines are a college football team.
A tailgate is when you have a party outside of the stadium before the game. I went to a tailgate party.
Here are some of the best players on Michigan: Chase Winovich, Devin Bush, Rashan Gary, Brandon Watson, Josh Metellus, Shea Patterson, Donovan Peoples-Jones, Tarik Black, Khaleke Hudson, Karon Higdon, Chris Evans and Tru Wilson.
Michigan #19 vs. SMU Not Ranked in Top 25
Before the game they have a tradition to jump up and touch a banner and that also gives you a signal that the game was about to start. When Michigan gets a touchdown they sing a chant. Here are some words I’ll teach you that you might not know in the song: (1) Victors Valiant – it means that you won in a fair way and did not cheat; (2) Conquering Hero – you are are hero, you won and conquered the other team and everybody is proud of you.
The game was starting and five minutes into the game Shea Patterson threw a bomb and Donavan Peoples-Jones got a touchdown. There was a chant: Whose Jones? The PEOPLES-JONES!
The score was 14-7 Michigan but SMU was at the 20 yard line. On second down Devin Bush got a big sack. It was third down and Josh Mettles got an interception and runs it back for a touchdown. It was 21-7 at half time.
In the third quarter, Tru got a big run and everybody yells TRUUUUUUUUUUU! It was the end of the third quarter and Brandon Watson got a penalty. SMU was at the 10 yard line and they fumble.
Then they did another tradition. The college kids decide a motion – slow, regular, fast – and they go around waving their arms. It’s called the wave.
Then the game was over and the score was 45-20 Michigan.
I wanted to write this because it was my first football game in Ann Arbor. It was also one of my favorite trips. I went September 15, 2018.
