Loyal Readers, we have just been contacted by the folks over at Nissan who have an awesome opportunity for all those attending the game this weekend in Chicago. For those not going, don’t worry there is something in store for you too.
Nissan is hosting a free fan event near the stadium before the game. Fans will have a chance to take a picture with the Heisman Trophy, get free team swag, play fun interactive games, and meet 1987 Heisman Trophy winner Tim Brown. For folks that aren’t attending the game but still want to connect with the Notre Dame legend, Nissan (@NissanNews) will also be hosting a live Twitter chat with Tim (@81TimBrown) from 5:30-6:00 p.m. tomorrow. Anyone who submits a question during the chat with the hashtag #NissanHeisman will be entered to win one of three footballs signed by Tim.
