Happy Northwestern football game day!
The Northwestern community has access to a new all-student tailgate event north of Ryan Field at the grass practice fields that opens four hours before kickoff and will close 30 minutes before kickoff. The designated area is titled "Fitzerland" after head coach, Pat Fitzgerald.
Gas grills will be open for student groups to rent.
Today is the first day of "Fitzerland" before Northwestern plays Syracuse at 5 p.m.
