Halloween CFB: Penn St. at Northwestern

31 October 2009 No Comment

For the fourth Saturday in a row I attended a Northwestern football game. It was a rare 3:30 pm start for Northwestern football. Their games are almost always at 11 am unless they are planning one of the top teams in the Big Ten.

Northwestern stayed in the game for three quarters as they were tied with Penn St. 13-13 heading into the 4th quarter. However, Penn St. struck for three touchdowns in the 4th quarter to defeat Northwestern 34-13.

Obtaining Tickets
Once again I received a free ticket as I was tailgating in the Northwestern parking lot. Usually one of my buddies decides not to attend the game (to either continue tailgating or go home with their kids) and hands me there ticket.

If I had not received a free ticket, tickets would have been cheap on the secondary market. There were a lot of fans and ticket scalpers holding up there tickets meaning you could easily have paid $5 or $10 for a ticket (or maybe even received a free one).

Fireworks
In what must be a first, Northwestern had fireworks night at Ryan Field after the game.
