The Scouting Report

On his team's opening play of the 2013 season, Fighting Illini quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase launched a 52-yard bomb into the hands of receiver Ryan Lankford. The play was not only an emphatic start to the season, but it also kicked off what would become a career game for Scheelhaase. The senior threw for a career-high 416 yards and two touchdowns in the victory, earning Big 10 Offensive Player of the Week honors in the process. On September 14, in what has been dubbed "The Chicago Homecoming Game", Scheelhaase and the Fighting Illini bring their explosive offense north for a showdown with the Washington Huskies at Soldier Field. The game marks the Fighting Illini's second game ever at Soldier Field, and it's the first time the Illini have been invited back since 1994 after players left all the toilet seats up in their locker room.

Soldier Field

Soldier Field hosted its first football game between a pair of high school teams on October 4, 1924, when it was still named Grant Park Municipal Stadium. Though it's perhaps best known as the home of the Chicago Bears—who officially moved in during the 1971 season—the facility harbors much more than just football history within its Greco-Roman-inspired bowl.

A 61,500-seat memorial to those who have died at war, Soldier Field has echoed with the roars of fans during historic boxing matches, trendsetting hockey games, and landmark cultural moments. Rock 'n roll icons, such as Paul McCartney, the Rolling Stones, and U2, have all rattled the Doric columns that rise skyward at the facility's entrance. For all its versatility, though, Soldier Field's primary duty remains hosting the Bears every fall. In fact, it now holds rank as the oldest stadium in the NFL—a fact that it always mentions when tutoring younger arenas during the summer.
