    EVANSTON, Ill. -- As kids get ready to head back to school, make sure they have something fun to tell their classmates when the teacher asks, "What did you do this summer?" Bring the whole family out to Ryan Field for the Wildcats' Meet The Team Night presented by Athletico at 6 p.m. Friday, August 27 to hang out with the Wildcat Football team -- playing catch, kicking field goals, taking pictures and much more!

    This free event will begin at the north end of Ryan Field on Walker Terrace where fans will be treated to complementary beverages provided by Pepsi and Goose Island, proud sponsors of Northwestern Athletics.
