Football games have different meanings, depending on who you ask. For students, they're social events. For players, they're the culmination of a hard week of practice. And for the staff, the games are their jobs.

On November 8, Michigan visited Evanston to take on the Wildcats in a battle of two below-.500 teams. The outcome wasn't pretty – a 10-9 Wolverine victory – but what happened behind the scenes throughout the game was a work of art.

Chaos was successfully controlled, and logistically, everything went to plan. Normally, when everything goes to plan, that isn't newsworthy. But hey, this isn't supposed to be normal. It's Gameday.
