Illini football at Wrigley Field??

There aren’t a lot of details but Wrigley Field may be the home of future Northwestern-Illinois football games.

Both teams have been in talks working out the finer points.  The soonest it could happen would be the 2010 season, according to the Big Ten Network.  Illinois football coach Ron Zook favors the idea.

It wouldn’t be the first time football was played at Wrigley.  The Chicago Bears played there up until 1970.  This video clip shows the Bears coming out of the locker room when they played at the Friendly Confines.
