Michigan Stadium transforms into ice rink

The Big House has been seeing some big ice time lately.

The outdoor football stadium in Ann Arbor, Mich., will host the 2014 NHL Winter Classic between the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs on New Year's Day, but crew members are hard at work converting it into a functional, NHL-sized rink.

Watch the process of transforming Michigan Stadium with the latest time-lapse video above.
