Be warned. They funnel thousands of people into that small tunnel on the south west side in a attempt to kill fans. They think someone being crushed to death is funny. Just a horrid situation there. Malicious attempt to kill people in that tunnel!

We went during Family Weekend at Northwestern. The school provides shuttles from campus and downtown. The stadium is a great place to see a game. Although the food lines were busy at halftime, they moved quick. The shuttles back were quick and efficient.

Easy stadium to move around in. It needs another big screen. Food was ok and prices were reasonable. Parking was a mess.

Apparently many Big Ten Conference fans only attend games when and where they can get the latest stadium amenities, the biggest crowds, and a long list of food and beverage items at concession stands. That misses the point of going to a stadium to watch...More

I was here for the Michigan v. Northwestern game with my sister, and we were both surprised at how "intimate" the place was. We had great views of the field, and getting in and out was extremely quick and easy. It was really great hanging...More

It is tiny. I dont think two men can walk shoulder to shoulder into the stadium - the ramps are that small. The bathroom situation is a mess (long lines for men) The concessions are also backed up. The jumbotron in the stadium was more...More

While the game we attended seemed like a home game (with half the crowd Michigan), as a UM fan I surely would never stake a claim to this dump of a stadium! It appears as if little or no upgrades have happened since this place...More
