The Northwestern Wildcats and the Stanford Cardinal have scheduled a 2015-16 home-and-home football series, Northwestern announced today.
Northwestern will host Stanford at Ryan Field in Evanston on Sept. 5, 2015. The Wildcats will travel to face the Cardinal at Stanford Stadium on Sept. 24, 2016.
Last year, the two schools announced a 4-game home-and-home series that will take place between 2019 and 2022. The Wildcats and the Cradinal will meet in Evanston in 2019 and 2012 and in Stanford in 2020 and 2022.
The 2015 game will rekindle a series that hasn’t been played since the two teams tied 41-41 in 1994. Stanford leads the overall series 3-1-2.
Is the NCAA completion committee out of their mind by scheduling The Northwestern Wildcats against the Stanford Cardinals in a home and away series for the 2015 and the 2016 football seasons respectively. The Northwestern Wildcats have had a hard enough time with their own completion in the Big Ten conference in beating teams like Ohio State, Michigan and Wisconsin. Even though these match ups would transpired for another three and four seasons Ican feel safe in saying that chalk up two wins for the Stanford Cardinals in the home and away series. What a disgrace the NCAA competion committee is for exerting very poor judgment in scheduling these two teams to meet! I hope for the sake of the Nortwestern Wildcats they will protest vehemately to playing the Stanford Cardinals. Kevin L. Broehm Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin
hey NCAA competion committee in regards to the Northwestern Widcats match up with Stanford Cardinals for the 2015 and 2016 football home away schedules for both teams. Are you planning to televise on certain areas of the country this match up or on ESPN or ESPN2 therefore with the intent to humiliate the Northwestern Wildcats football program.BETTER reconconsider this proposed match up between these two teams carefully before ratings for college football games on local and or televised games on ESPN and ESPN2 take a nose dive in the ratingsCome on NCAA competion committee I sure youre not going to sink this low in three and four football seasons from now. Well you going to do what you need to do for ratings but in my opinion you’re making a HUGH MISTAKE!!!
Come college football fans speak out against this match. have the Stanford Cardinals go up against Ohio State, Michigan, Iowa, Nebraska or my favorite and best of all college teams in the Big Ten Conference THE WISCONSIN BADGERS
Here’s an interesting little tid bit…NU and Wisconsin have met six times over the past ten years…record 3-3. NU will do fine against Stanford. Go Cats!!!
