Northwestern Wildcats 2018 Home GamesPosted on 08/20/2018 Fall means a new school year, pumpkin spice everything, and, of course, football. Here on Chicago’s North Shore, we have our very own Big Ten team to root for: the Northwestern Wildcats. After going 10-3 in 2017, the Wildcats are looking to be even better this year. According to ESPN, “Pat Fitzgerald's program has averaged nine wins in each of the past three seasons and should remain a team to be wary of in 2018.” But it won't be easy as the Big Ten is one of the country’s best conferences.
Ahead of the team’s first game of the season (Aug. 30 at Purdue), we took a look at all the teams that will be making their way to Evanston this year so you can be prepared for any trip you make to Ryan Field (be sure to get your tickets ASAP).
