Only one end zone used at Wrigley

Only one end zone will be used at Wrigley Field on Saturday for the Illinois-Northwestern game because of safety concerns, Illinois sports information director Kent Brown said Friday.

The east end zone is feet away from the right-field wall, and although there is padding, there was still concerns that injuries could take place. Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald had said he would have different game plans for the different end zones to avoid the possibility of injury.

When a team is on offense Saturday, it will be positioned to head to the west end zone.

"A decision was made with both coaching staffs and the athletic directors of both schools and the [big Ten] commissioner to start every possession and go west," Brown said on "The Waddle & Silvy Show" on ESPN 1000. "Student-athlete safety concerns is first and foremost."
