It's called the Winter Classic for a reason.

While college football bowl games were being played in sunny locales like Florida, Southern California and Arizona on New Year's Day, the NHL brought it's signature outdoor event up to Michigan's Big House. The snow was falling and the temperature was hovering around 10 degrees when the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs took the ice for the 2014 Winter Classic in Ann Arbor, Mich. Despite the frigid atmosphere, more than 100,000 fans filled Michigan Stadium, according to NBC Sports.
