Associate AD Paul Kennedy announced at the team’s weekly press conference that Northwestern will be offering free tickets and transportation to any undergraduate student that wants to attend the Big Ten Championship in Indianapolis. Students are scheduled to receive an email today and need to respond by Wednesday to reserve their requests.
Northwestern punched their ticket to Indianapolis after beating Iowa, thanks to a pair of losses from Purdue and Wisconsin. This is the program’s first visit to the Big Ten Championship game, and presents a chance to earn a conference championship, something Northwestern has not done since 2000.
The Wildcats will face either Ohio State or Michigan, depending on how the final two weeks of the season play out. The conference championship game will be played on Dec. 1, with kickoff set for 7:00 p.m. Central.
More details regarding tickets are soon to follow for all Northwestern fans that are not undergraduate students.
