Northwestern Wildcats put together for ‘enterprise journey’ in Ireland towards Nebraska in season opener
CHICAGO (CBS) — Northwestern soccer opens their season in simply over three weeks towards Nebraska.
The two will meet in Ireland on August twenty seventh, per week earlier than most of school soccer will kick off.
It would be the first time leaving the nation for a lot of of those Wildcat gamers, so that they’ll need to benefit from the journey, but in addition concentrate on beating a Nebraska workforce that crushed the Cats final 12 months.
“It’s crazy to say this is going into my fourth year of college football. I kinda get emotional. I think when you get down to it, it’s a business trip,” stated quarterback Ryan Hilinski.
“What I did was I had them raise their hands (to) who’s never left the country. It was a lot of hands. So, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity. To go play internationally, to be the first college game of the year, I think it’s something that our guys will always remember,” stated head coach Pat Fitzgerald. “They’ll especially remember if we go play well and win.”
“I’m looking forward to the experience. I’ve heard a lot of things about the food and the weather. It’s going to be interesting,” stated defensive again Cameron Mitchell. “But, you know, it’s a business trip. We’re going to get some revenge on Nebraska.”
This is one other sport postponed by the pandemic. It was initially speculated to be the Illini and Nebraska in Dublin final 12 months, however that sport ended up being performed in Champaign.
