11/12 Purple reign at Wrigley

Wrigley Field’s fabled marquee will turn purple on Monday. The sign will be changed from red to purple to promote the Nov. 20 college football game between Northwestern and Illinois. The marquee was created by the Federated Sign Co., and was a blue-green color when it was installed for the 1934 season. It remained that color until it was painted red in the mid-1960s.
The game will be the first college football game at Wrigley since 1938, and kicks off at 2:30 p.m. CT.
