After a week of homecoming festivities, Northwestern students and alumni gathered at tailgates Saturday. Purple pride flooded the Ryan Field parking lot before the ‘Cats won against Howard. 

Some fans took the opportunity to express their support for former head coach Pat Fitzgerald, who filed a wrongful termination lawsuit against the University and President Michael Schill Thursday. Others gathered to support a team without him.
