Pregame Festivities

Come visit the NIU Alumni Association outside Gate 5 and get a giveaway from 10:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. Mission and Victor E. will be there to greet you and you can get a photo with them.

NIU Athletics will also be offering fans ticket deals for the Nov. 9 Huskie Chi-Town Showdown, when the NIU football team takes on the Toledo Rockets at U.S. Cellular Field.

Another option is to visit Reggies, an NIU alum-owned bar near U.S. Cellular Field, starting at 10 a.m., for a Reyka Vodka promotion. Free shuttle service to and from the game will be provided by Reggies, located at 2105 S. State St. The buses will make multiple runs to U.S. Cellular and will be available for return trips after the sixth inning.
