I don't even really care about football, but the excitement is palpable. I can feel it in the air and it is infectious.
I'm not going to the game -- I planned to, but then I scored some theatre tickets that take serious precedence -- but I'm hoping for the very best for my senior homecoming!
Did Northwestern fans purchase any tickets to the game? The Ohio State fans seem more prevalent and are much louder, at least on television.
The campus was crawling with people, and it seemed like a ton of people were going. I know the student section was beyond packed. But a lot of OSU fans turned up, so it's possible we were overwhelmed.
I got out of a concert and sprinted barefoot to my apartment four blocks away, changed clothes, and biked furiously up the two miles up to the field. I realized I had no idea which gate to go in (I, uh, haven't gotten around to a game yet) but found a nice older woman sitting on a couch in some grass nearby, with a big screen TV. It was strange, but I took the chance to watch the last two minutes. Womp, womp. Everyone's still pleased with the game and very proud of how our 'Cats performed.
