Big Ten officials have decided to have Northwestern and the University of Illinois both use the same end zone on offense when the square off at Wrigley field. The reason for this strange change is that the teams are concerned that the one end zone was too close to the right field wall at the stadium that is usually only used for baseball. So whenever there is a change in possession that doesn't immediately lead to a touchdown, at the dead ball the ball will be repositioned so that the offense will always be heading toward the West side of the field. This seems like a good compromise that will lead to some fun memories both for the fans and for the players.
