2018 Northwestern Wildcats Football Tickets & Schedule

Back to Top

Northwestern first fielded a football team in 1876, but the program wouldn't adopt the name Wildcats until 1924. The Wildcats were ranked No. 1 during the 1936 and 1962 seasons, a feat they have not repeated since. Northwestern does manage, however, to graduate an impressive percentage of their athletes, and have managed to develop talented players that have gone on to have stellar NFL careers, such as Otto Graham, Napoleon Harris, Woody Campbell, Zach Strief and Steve Tasker. Score with TicketCity - the place to go for Northwestern Wildcats football tickets.

Northwestern vs Illinois Tickets

This in-state rivalry of Illinois has been played annually since 1927 and was played for the Sweet Sioux Tomahawk Trophy from 1947-2008, but that ended when the NCAA mandated Native American imagery be removed from competition. Northwestern won the last game, earning the right to keep the trophy, but now the Land of Lincoln Trophy changes hands as each team wins. The teams met at Wrigley Field, of MLB's Chicago Cubs, in 2010.
