Northwestern also played a game at Wrigley Field against Illinois in 2010. It was the first college football game at the venue since 1938.

"This type of experience, just nine miles south of campus, is only available at a place like Northwestern," Northwestern head coach Pat Fitzgerald said in a statement. "The opportunity to create a bowl game environment for our student-athletes and fans, in the midst of the November battle for the Big Ten West, is one we're extremely thankful for. It's one of many big games we'll host in Chicagoland over the next several years."

Added Northwestern athletic director Jim Phillips: "We are thrilled to return to one of the truly iconic venues in all of sports. We're so appreciative of the collaboration with Tom Ricketts, Crane Kenney and the entire Cubs organization that made this a reality. This is a date that college football fans across the country will be looking forward to until it arrives."
