WILDCAT FORMATION: In Chicago, Teddy Greenstein reports the "most significant hurdle has been cleared" in Northwestern Univ.'s (NU) "quest to host a football game at Wrigley Field: The dimensions, it has been determined, can accommodate 22 players and two sidelines." Sources said that with the "safety issue resolved," both NU AD Jim Phillips and Kenney are "working toward making the game a reality."
