University of Illinois - Memorial Stadium
This panorama, taken by James Blakeway, features the Fighting Illini football team playing on home turf at Memorial Stadium. This Homecoming Game and Big Ten season opener is also the battle for the "Land of Lincoln" rivalry trophy, which is presented to the winner of the annual football game between Illinois and Northwestern University. Homecoming at the University of Illinois is the longest continuously running tradition of its kind. The Homecoming tradition has been celebrated on the Illinois campus for more than 100 years, since the inaugural event in 1910. In its first Homecoming game, Illinois beat the University of Chicago, 3-0. The University was established in 1867.
Homecoming in Champaign, under the glorious fall sunshine, and a sea of orange witnessing a thrilling 38-35 victory - it doesn't get any better than this! This panorama features the scene at the stadium on October 1, 2011, as the Illini pick up a big first-quarter gain. As tens of thousands of orange-clad fans cheer the play - SNAP! The moment is preserved for all-time, and is now available for your wall. Whether you were there in attendance that day, were watching on TV, or are simply looking for a beautiful gameday panorama of Memorial Stadium for your wall, this one's for you! A rare, beautiful poster for your wall, and a valuable collector's item for years to come.
