Huskie Stadium
INFORMATION DIRECTIONS

Huskie Stadium is home to Football, Gymnastics, as well as Wrestling. In 2001, the AstroTurf playing surface has been replaced by a new FieldTurf surface. The new Field Turf was partially funded by the Illinois Department of Commerce and Community Affairs, Illinois Tire Recovery Program.

In Fall 2003, the playing surface was renamed Brigham Field. It was only fitting that Northern Illnois University intercollegiate athletics honor Robert J. Brigham, the man who carried the Cardinal and Black colors for 50 years as a student-athlete, assistant coach, head coach, director of athletics, and special assistant to the president before his retirement in June, 2001.

In addition, a Daktronics Video Score Board system has been added to the Scoreboard behind the south endzone. This system allows Huskie Athletics to present live action and replays to the crowds at Huskie Stadium.
