Cubs to host college football game at Wrigley

Posted on 27 April 2010 by David McCormick

The Chicago Cubs are set to host its first college football game since 1938 at Wrigley Field on Nov. 20.  Northwestern will take on Illinois in the Big Ten match up. The field is going to run from the cubs dugout to the right field bleachers. When the Chicago Bears played at Wrigley it ran from the left field bleachers to the visitors dugout, the Bears have not played there since 1970.

The last time Northwester and Illinois took the field on the north side the park was called Cubs Park and they had 32,000 fans show up in 1923.
