The Big Freeze packed our bags for the West Coast to celebrate the 2019 College Football Playoff National Championship. Located in sunny San Jose, California, the championship was the culminating game of a riveting 2018-2019 college football season. To say the event is highly anticipated by fans is a gross understatement, as it had almost 75,000 in attendance and a whopping 25.28 million viewers worldwide. The game itself made a touchdown in history, as the South Carolina Clemson Tigers defeated the Alabama Crimson Tide, giving them the title of first champs with an undefeated 15-0 record in college football since 1897. Another highly anticipated event surrounding the game? Playoff Fan Central, an incredible 3-day, 200,000 square feet interactive experience, boasting special guest appearances, autograph signings, exhibits, games and of course, an epic Big Freeze camera system.
With vibrant yard-lines surrounding the interior to give guests a sense of the field action, The Big Freeze custom array was 10ft in diameter and was constructed to accommodate 24 cameras. Alabama alum and New York Giants safety Landon Collins and college football’s most knowledgeable and entertaining analyst Lee Corso were among the football royalty to make their mark on the Big Freeze gallery. The American sports broadcaster made headlines after successfully predicting the outcome of the season, and he celebrated Big Freeze style by letting us capture his excitement in stunning, 360-degree frozen motion. Touchdown for the Big Freeze!
