Northwestern, Stanford to meet on gridiron

Northwestern and Stanford will play a four-game series starting

in 2019.

The Wildcats will host the first game and head to Palo Alto the

following year, with games at Northwestern in 2021 and Stanford in

2022.

The schools have played six times, most recently a 41-41 tie in

1994. In a statement released Wednesday, Northwestern athletic

director Jim Phillips says he’s ”thrilled” to add Stanford to the

schedule.
