Northwestern is taking on Nebraska today as part of college football's Week 0 kickoff. This would be largely unremarkable if they were playing in the United States. But they are not! The Wildcats are dueling the Cornhuskers in Dublin as part of the inaugural Aer Lingus College Football Classic.
Pretty sweet for the Irish CFB fans out there and even better for any Northwestern/Nebraska alumns looking to make a trip across the pond. As hard as it is to believe, matters improved significantly during the game.
At some point in the first half, the WiFi went out at Aviva Stadium. As a result, everything was free. Including beer and other alcohol.
