10:57 AM ET 02.03 | Northwestern will hold a joint press conference with the Cubs on Tuesday where they are expected to announce multiple future football games will be played at Wrigley Field as well as an ongoing business partnership between the team and the university. No games are expected to be schedule in 2013. Expanding Wrigley Field so it can house a regulation football field is expected to be part of the Cubs' renovation plan. The last time Northwestern played in Wrigley Field in 2010, the Big Ten decided the day before the game to use only one end zone for offense because of safety concerns.

Have they solved Wrigley's "you can only kick toward one end zone" problem?

I don't get this. How does playing at a baseball stadium help Northwestern? They have trouble selling out Dyche Stadium. Do they think this really makes them "Chicago's Big Ten Team"?
