Feb 14, 2013


The Bears may have packed up and gone home for the season, but that doesn't mean Soldier Field will be sitting empty this winter.

Instead, they'll be watching the stadium's first Hockey City Classic, featuring games between Notre Dame and Miami, Wisconsin and Minnesota. Lauren Cook will take a behind-the-scenes look at what it took to build a rink on the famed field and how workers are keeping the rink in good condition during a winter of record-high temps.
