Crews installed bright yellow goal posts at Wrigley Field on Monday, positioning them in front of the Cubs’ dugout and the right field bleachers. The field is being converted for the Nov. 20 college football game between Northwestern and Illinois. The ballpark has been decorated with purple banners to announce the game. This will be the first football game at Wrigley since 1970 and first collegiate game there since 1938. The Chicago Bears called Wrigley Field home from 1921 to 1970. However, the field at that time ran north-south. The field for the Nov. 20 game will be east-west.
