|Northwestern AD Open to Playing at Wrigley Again
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Northwestern might be willing to play two at Wrigley Field.
Athletic director Jim Phillips isn't ruling out another football game at the Chicago Cubs' historic old ballpark after the Wildcats lost to Illinois in a game played under unique circumstances on Saturday.
He says he "wouldn't have much hesitation to jump back in" but he would have to "think about it," and discuss it with coach Pat Fitzgerald and the Cubs. So for now, he's not willing to make any commitments.
Northwestern and Illinois were looking for publicity when they agreed to play at Wrigley and they certainly got their share.
Not only was it the first football game there in 40 years, there were some last-minute rules changes that drew more attention.
