Since we are in the off-season doldrums, I thought now would be a good time to solicit advice on attending the 10/18 game. Keep in mind the game is Friday night. Specific areas of interest:
Transportation - Since it is Friday night, is the train from downtown an option? Where do you pick up & get off? How late does it run? If renting a car, is Midway or O'Hare better? Parking near Ryan Field?
Hotels - Downtown or North of Evanston?
Tickets - Apparently Northwestern isn't selling singles. Season tickets appear to start at $230. Any watch outs such as sections to avoid due to crappy view?
