There are two main antitrust exemptions when it comes to sports. The first is that Major League Baseball has a historical exemption. Essentially at the time of the first Supreme Court decision on the issue, MLB was not considered interstate commerce and, thus, there could be no violation of the Sherman Act. In subsequent cases, the Supreme Court has followed precedent with respect to MLB, but has refused to extent the exemption to other sports.
The second antitrust exemption applies to any employer who has to negotiate with unionized labor. Labor law carves out an exemption allowing employers to negotiate with unions. These negotiations would otherwise violate antitrust law. This applies to all employers who negotiate with unions (e.g. automakers negotiating with the UAW or the NFL negotiating with the NFLPA). This exemption is the reason the NFLPA had to decertify to file an antitrust suit against the NFL.
No NCAA exemption exists. In fact, the NCAA has been found to violate the Sherman Act. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NCAA_v._Board_of_Regents_of_the_University_of_Oklahoma

The Michigan Ticket Office sent out this picture of the obstructed view. Can be pretty bad for some seats.

[Devin] makes an aggressive vertical move and defeats him with a missile. The encounter was a victory, but we show it as an example of what not to do.

Maybe the Yale Bowl in New Haven would be a good compromise. I believe it seats 65,000 and is only an hour away from UConn. Plus it is a college stadium instead of an NFL stadium.
