Northwestern's football team is on a bye week, which means players get a small break from the usual weekly grind.

Well, the Wildcats took advantage of their Friday bye week practice, having a little bit of Halloween fun.

Head coach Pat Fitzgerald and the players got together to plan a surprise on the assistant coaches, dressing up in Halloween costumes for practice to get into the holiday spirit.

Check out the video at the top of the post.

My personal favorite: The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles running through defensive drills.

Enjoy, Wildcat fans!
