Head to State Farm Center for attempt at world record

Looking for something to do Sunday afternoon? Want to help break a world record?

The Illinois women's basketball team is inviting everyone to Pack the House for its 1 p.m. game Sunday at the State Farm Center. Admission for the Big Ten game against Nebraska is free, and coach Matt Bollant's entire team will sign autographs after the game.

The goal is to break the world record for most people wearing paper crowns at a single location. The current record is 749, set on June 9, 2012, at the Pangbourne Village Fete in Pangbourne, Berkshire, United Kingdom.

Pre-orders for group seating are available. For more information, call 866-ILLINI-1.
