Northwestern football at Wrigley: Wildcats eying "multiple" dates beginning in 2014

New, 10 comments

Northwestern will reportedly schedule "multiple" future games at Wrigley Field, although they'll have to wait until after the stadium undergoes renovations in between the 2013 and 2014 seasons.

We're going off what two reporters had to say: first up, Neil Hayes of the Chicago Sun-Times, who said that the Tuesday press conference at Wrigley will feature the announcement

Previously, we knew there would be one, as well as an agreement across multiple sports, but we hadn't heard anything about the school planning on making Wrigley a regular affair.

Next, from Teddy Greenstein of the Trib, who had a pretty comprehensive article on the subject:

Those would appear to be the only two possible dates. There was some speculation about Nebraska being the team a few months back, but that game is currently set for October, and as LOLlerskates as the Cubs are, that's a no-no. Regardless, the 2014 date is less of a big deal if there's supposedly going to be more than one game played at Wrigley.
