How nice is Northwestern's new lakeside practice field?

Honest question: How many college football teams can say they have a nicer practice field than Northwestern’s new lakeside Hutcheson Field?

After seeing the finished product, it’s not many, if any.

The Wildcats practiced on the new field, which is situated steps from Lake Michigan, running parallel to the body of water, and with a view of the Chicago skyline, for the first time Tuesday.

Talk about a view! Don’t be surprised if Pat Fitzgerald catches a coach or player soaking up his surroundings in the coming days.

See a video of the new field in the tweet above and get pictures of it in the tweet below.
