Wrigley Field football is dead. Or is it long live football at Wrigley Field?
The 104th edition of the rivalry between the Northwestern Wildcats versus the Illinois Fighting Illini, set to take place this Saturday at 2:30 PM, has a different feel to it, with historic Wrigley Field playing host to both schools in a pseudo-home game for the Wildcats.
Another season for the Wildcats and another season they will be chasing the team’s first NCAA Tournament appearance.
Two weeks ago there was talk of Illinois winning as many as nine games and playing in a Post New Years’ bowl game. Loses to Michigan and Minnesota in consecutive weeks have instead dampened those dreams and now the best the Illini can hope for is a 7-5 finish.
There’s only one side of history that teams strive to be part of and that’s the side making the history. This Saturday, Northwestern will try to avoid becoming a footnote in college football history.
