In just over 24 hours, Northwestern is set to host Purdue in Evanston, Il., in a matchup of Big Ten teams.
Snow showers rolled through the Chicago area on Friday, blanketing Ryan Field.
With temperatures dipping below 30 degrees through Friday night into Saturday morning, there’s a good chance that snow sticks around for kickoff.
