Northwestern lacrosse

After wrapping up a stretch of four straight road games Tuesday at Massachusetts, No. 7 Northwestern returns to Evanston to make its long-awaited debut at Lakeside Field Sunday when it hosts defending NCAA champion and top-ranked North Carolina.

Opening draw is set for Noon CT. Fans in the Chicagoland area who can’t make it to Lakeside can watch live on television as the Wildcats make their first-ever appearance on Comcast SportsNet Chicago, the cable home of the Chicago Bulls, Blackhawks, White Sox and Cubs. NU and UNC last met in the NCAA semifinals last spring, when the Tar Heels snapped Northwestern’s run of eight straight title game berths en route to their program’s first national championship.

Sunday's Promotions: Early-arriving fans will receive Northwestern Lacrosse beanies, courtesy of the Northwestern Lacrosse booster club. Also, be sure to stick around after the game for postgame autographs with the Wildcats.
