Hear Our City Magazine had an opportunity to provide media coverage for the 2017 Quick Lane Bowl game at Ford Field in Detroit, MI.
ACC Duke University Football and MAC Northern Illinois University power football teams came to Detroit with winning records and one goal: to leave Detroit with the Quick Lane Bowl title Championship trophy. During each team’s stay in Detroit they had a chance to visit Gleaners Food Bank and several other Detroit spots with their teammates. Both teams had a wonderful time in Detroit visiting several Detroit hot spots and taking photos with community fans.
Over 20,000 people came out to watch and witness both teams go head to head inside Ford Field. Each team fans traveled from their home state to support their university football team. The roar of support from each team fan base throughout the game each quarter was a strong signal to each other that they were going to support their teams until the last play of the game.
Both Football programs are coached by well respected football coaches with proved winning football records. But Duke University at the end prevailed as the winner at Ford Field Quick Lane Bowl Game and took home the championship trophy.
