About Northwestern Wildcats Football Tickets
The origins of the Northwestern football program date back to 1876 despite the fact that the school did not play an intercollegiate game until 1882. On February 22, 1876, a group of students played a friendly game against the Chicago Football Club, so from then until 1882 when the Wildcats finally faced off against Lake Forest College, football was just an intramural sport.
In the early years, the team operated as an independent. But in 1896 they became a charter members of what would eventually become the Big Ten (initially called the Western Conference).
The name ‘Wildcats’ stuck after a reporter referred to the team as a ‘wall of purple wildcats’ in the Chicago Tribune in 1924.
Northwestern administrators suspended the program for a couple of years because of the perceived brutality of football at the time. But once the Wildcats were given the green-light to play, they took home four conference titles from 1926-1936.
Fans at Ryan Field (formerly Dyche Stadium; located in Evanston, Illinois) did not have much to be excited about until Gary Barnett took over the program almost sixty years later. It took him a few years to foster a winning squad, but in 1995 he guided the team to an undefeated conference record and a trip to the Rose Bowl. The Wildcats won the conference both that year and the next, while tied for first in the nation.
Their last conference title came in 2000 in Randy Walker’s second year in charge of the program. Former NU linebacker Pat Fitzgerald has since taken the reigns as head coach for the ‘Cats, who put an exciting team on the field each and every fall in beautiful Evanston, IL.
