Along with relocating the student section to the southeast corner of the stadium, the visitor section has been designated in the student section's old location.

The move will put the Northwestern students and marching band in the view of the television cameras that reside on the west sideline and face east.

The Northwestern football team will be able to make a "week-by-week decision" as to whether the team will use the east or west sideline, a spokesperson told Inside Northwestern.
