Northwestern Wildcats Football Tickets
The Schedule in 2013
The 2013 season has really been like 2 seasons
in one for the Northwestern Wildcats. They started out red hot winning their first four games and looking to make some noise
in the Big 10's Legends Division. Things haven't gone as planned with the Wildcats losing their last 5 games, all in the Big
10. They have suffered from some bad luck, though, losing to Nebraska 27-24 on a last second Hail Mary pass by the Huskers.
There is still time, though, for the Wildcats to turn things around in the Big 1o Conference.
The first order of business
for Northwestern is to take down the Michigan Wolverines on November 16 at Ryan Field in Evanston. The Wolverines are 6-2
in the Big 10 and need a win to have a chance at catching their in state rivals, the Michigan State Spartans. A win against
the tough Wolverine squad would go a long way towards salvaging the 2013 season for the Northwestern Wildcats. This game is
extra special for the Northwestern football program because the team will be wearing special red, white and blue uniforms
to held support the Wounded Warrior program. Come out to Ryan Field to help support this amazing cause and cheer on the Northwestern
For the final home game of the year, the Wildcats welcome the Michigan State Spartans, the #1 ranked team
in the Big 10 Legends Division and currently ranked #17 in the country. Ryan Field will be rocking on gameday when the Wildcats
will look to play spoiler for the Spartans, who have BCS bowl aspirations. A win over the Spartans would make a huge statement
for the Wildcats and be a big push of momentum going into the 2014 season.
The Northwestern Wildcats
are members of the Legends Division of the powerhouse Big 10 Conference. This great academic institution has been a part of
the Big 10 Conference since it began in 1896, and has won eight Big 10 titles. The Wildcats have enjoyed much recent success,
appearing in a bowl game every year since 2008. There are many notable Wildcat alumni who have gone on to great success in
the National Football League including Pro Bowl wide receiver Steve Tasker, NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Otto Graham, and
their current head coach, Pat Fitzgerald. Over the years, the Wildcats have gotten a reputation for playing in close games
during the 1996 season, earning themselves the nickname "Cardiac Cats". The "Cardiac Cats" name lives on, as the Wildcat seem
to find a way to keep things close.
The 2013 Northwestern Wildcats are reeling from a five game losing streak, all in
the Big 10, but are confident that they can win down the stretch against Michigan, Michigan State and their longtime rival
Illinois. A win over the Fighting Illini would make everyone in Evanston happy. The Wildcats are led by their sophomore sensation,
running back Treyvon Green, who has been enjoying a fantastic season, including 19 rushes for 149 yards and 3 touchdowns in
their heartbreaking last second loss to Big 10 foe Nebraska Cornhuskers. This gritty team will be playing hard til the very
end, so get out and support your Wildcats as they fight for their season.
Football is one
of the best sports to see live and college football across the country has turned into a way of life rather than just a sporting
event. Gameday is full of rituals, from dressing up in team colors and painting your face, to writing signs of the television
cameras, to putting an incredible spread of food together to enjoy with friends and family outside the stadium before the
game. In college football, a Saturday is full of sacred traditions that have been passed down through generations of students,
ripe with superstitions and honor. Seeing a game at Ryan Field is a special event, where fans, students and alumni come together
to cheer on the Wildcats with cheers like "Go U, NU!" and growling with the marching band to throw of the opposing teams.
There is no atmosphere in sports quite like a Saturday in college football, so grab tickets to be a part of something special
at Ryan Field, the home of the Northwestern Wildcats.
For decades, the Big 10 has been
one of the top college football conferences in the country and only became more feared when they added the Nebraska Corhnhuskers
in 2011. Realigned into two divisions, the Legends and Leaders, based on their geographic locations and time zones. Beginning
in 2014, the University of Maryland and Rutgers University will be added to the Big 10, adding two more great football programs
to the conference. The Big 10 also boasts strength in academics as well as athletics, with all but two schools being known
as a part of the "Public Ivies." Big 10 student athletes are on the top of their game in the classrooms and on the field.
This strong group of football teams are always in competition with the best school from any other conference, with three teams
currently ranked in the Top 25.

10 in 1900 and the two teams have squared off 81 times, with the Wildcats holding the series lead with a 46-34-1 record.
