Project 1-2-3: Day 18 - The Making of a Special Spectators Event: Special Access

Note: Starting May 1st and continuing for the 123 days leading up to the start of the 2011 college football season, "Project 1-2-3" will share pictures, videos and memorable moments from the last nine years of Special Spectators game day events.

In yesterday's "Project 1-2-3" post, we shared all the fun and excitement generated during the Special Spectators tailgate. That's only the start. Providing special access to people and areas of the stadium not accessible to most fans is a big part of our events. Below is just a sampling.
