Wrigley Field Will Host A College Football Game In 2021

There will be another college football game played at Wrigley Field.

The legendary baseball field will host Northwestern and Purdue on Nov. 21, 2021. It will be the second time the Wild Cats played in the baseball stadium in recent years.

The Wildcats lost to Illinois 48-27 in that game back in 2010.

Via NBC Sports:

The quirks in that contest included an east end zone (flanking the right field bleachers) that was unplayable due to space limitations. All football action had to go east to west ā€“or right to left from the vantage point of the viewer at home. But given the bullpens are now under the outfield bleachers, there will be enough space to accommodate a full football field.

Wrigley Field was home to the Chicago Bears until 1970.
