Makes sense that the two big private schools with rich academic traditions in the Rose Bowl conferences would team up for a few college football games in the near future. The Stanford Cardinal and the Northwestern Wildcats will be playing each other a few times, starting about eight years from now, John Taylor of College Football Talk reports. Here are the future dates of each game.
Ryan Field, Evanston, Illinois: Sept. 14, 2019
Stanford Stadium, Palo Alto, California: Sept. 19, 2020
Evanston: Sept. 18, 2021
Palo Alto: Sept. 17, 2022
This will not be the first time Northwestern will play games against a Bay Area team in the near future. In fact, the California Golden Bears will be starting a two game series with Northwestern in 2013-2014, playing a home game in Memorial Stadium in 2013 and heading over to Ryan Field the subsequent year.
