Football: Northwestern to offer free tickets, transportation to undergrads for Big Ten Championship Game

Ella Brockway, Reporter

The athletic department will offer free tickets and transportation for undergraduate students who want to attend the Big Ten Championship Game on Dec. 1 in Indianapolis, athletic department spokesman Paul Kennedy told The Daily at a news conference on Monday.

Undergraduate students will receive an email from the athletic department with further information later Monday and must respond by Wednesday to claim a spot.

The student package includes a ticket to the game, transportation to and from Indianapolis and meals provided on the bus. Initial emails sent to students after the Wildcats clinched the Big Ten West title in a 14-10 win at Iowa on Saturday advertised the price of student tickets at $45.

NU will face either Michigan or Ohio State in the conference championship, which is scheduled for a 7 p.m. kickoff. The game will be the Cats’ first visit to the Big Ten Championship Game, which has been held annually since 2011, in program history and is a chance for NU to claim its first conference title since 2000.

This story will be updated with more information as it becomes available.
