UW game back home
EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) — Northwestern’s game against Wisconsin scheduled for Nov. 7 at Wrigley Field in Chicago is being moved to Ryan Field because of uncertainties due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Northwestern announced the decision Wednesday after consulting with the Chicago Cubs, state and local authorities and the Big Ten Conference. Athletic director Jim Phillips cited the possibility of a limited crowd at the famed ballpark even if fans were allowed.
He called it “a disappointing conclusion to reach” and said the Wildcats hope to play there again “with a packed house.”
In 2010, Northwestern played Illinois in the first college football game at Wrigley Field since 1938.
The Wildcats have since played baseball and lacrosse games there.
