Wildcats honor "heroes" at home opener

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
The home opener was also "Heroes Day" at Northwestern. The "N" in the center of Ryan Field was red, white and blue instead of purple and white. Players wore identical decals on their helmets to honor the military, police, firemen, Coast Guard, search and rescue and others who put themselves in harms way. A Coast Guard helicopter flew over the stadium after the national anthem.
