Wildcat History
NU and the 1918 Flu Pandemic

As the world deals with COVID-19, let's look back at the only other time that NU football was affected by a global pandemic...

COVID-19 PANDEMIC
FORCES CANCELLATION
OF NCAA SPRING ACTIVITY

The NCAA has canceled all athletic activity for the rest of the 2019-20 year. With NU closed to all but essential staff, the school's extracurricular activities have ended for now.

As of March 24, it is unclear how the current situation will affect the 2020 football season.

Obviously, this is among the least of our concerns right now. We should, however, expect the season to be delayed, modified, or even canceled.

No HTP Spring Bowl Odds

HTP will not post the usual spring bowl odds this year, due to the cancellation of spring practice.
