Ryan Field is going to get a visit from Lord Stanley this Saturday.
Chicago Blackhawks chairman Rocky Wirtz and team president John McDonough will be bringing the cup to Evanston on Saturday as the Wildcats face off against Central Michigan.
Coach Pat Fitzgerald is very excited:
"As a native Chicagoan who grew up cheering for the Blackhawks, this is a thrill for our fans. It's terrific that we can recognize Rocky and John who have been so instrumental in leading the Blackhawks back to the top of the NHL. There should be plenty of electricity in the stadium on Saturday with the Stanley Cup on the field and our students back in the stands."
Northwestern has started the season 3-0 and might be able to contend for the Big Ten title without Ohio State on the schedule. Hopefully the Cup will bring the same kind of luck they have brought to the Bears who have started 2-0 since the Cup visited Soldier Field.
