Here’s What Wrigley Field Looks Like As A Football Field

In case you missed it, Big Ten football titans Northwestern and Illinois are the teams playing in the Allstate Wrigleyville Classic on November 20th at historic Wrigley Field. Photos are now beginning to surface of the grand transformation which Wrigley Field is currently undergoing to host its first football game since the Bears quit playing at the stadium in 1970 and the first collegiate game held there since 1938 when DePaul played its games there.

I suppose it will be pretty cool to have a football game there after so many years, and I anticipate a grand time shall be had by one and all in attendance – except for those who choose to pay attention to the unique brand of Big Ten football occurring on the field on that day between the Wildcats and the Fighting Illini.  Sorry, Michael Wilbon and water-skiing Ron Zook, it is what it is. But who am I to talk? The Gophers are the pathetic “big time” college football team here in my neck of the woods. Perhaps I should just keep my mouth shut. But I won’t.
