Are You Ready for Some Football?

Then Northfield, Minnesota is the place for you this weekend.  Our two historic, scenic and authentic colleges are hosting their homecoming games on Saturday.

Both of the games are important early season match-ups with MIAC rivals.   St. Olaf College hosts Bethel University  and Carleton College hosts Augsburg College at 1 p.m.  Both games begin at 1 p.m.

St. Olaf will play in their on-campus stadium, Manitou Field.  Due to the recent flooding damage to their on-campus football field, Laird Stadium, Carleton will play in Northfield High School’s Memorial Field (thanks, Raiders!).

The prediction is for perfect fall football weather, clear skies with temperatures in the upper 50s.  So check out the local college football team of your choice this Saturday…

…and before and/or after the game, come on down to our historic, scenic and authentic downtown for some eating, drinking, shopping, and visiting.
