Abe Lincoln likes to hang out at Ryan Field

He must be a Northwestern fan.

This week is #HatWeek, and apparently the State of Illinois is getting in on the fun, bringing Abe Lincoln back to life in miniature form to tell us more about the Northwestern-Illinois rivalry. From this Illinois tourism video, it's clear that Abe Lincoln wasn't the best football player, but one thing is for sure: He loves to hang out at Ryan Field.

Thus, we can reason that Abe Lincoln is rooting for Northwestern this weekend and does not want his hat to end up in Champaign. Thanks for the PSA, State of Illinois!
