CHICAGO (AP) - Northwestern and the Chicago Cubs have announced a partnership that includes five college football games at Wrigley Field.

The dates of the games are still to be determined due to construction work at the Cubs' storied ballpark.

In 2010, Illinois beat Northwestern 48-27 at Wrigley Field in a game that required both teams to run offensive plays only toward the west end zone near the third-base dugout. The east end zone in right field came within a foot or so of a heavily padded brick wall, raising safety concerns.

Under the multiyear agreement, the Cubs will be allowed to market the baseball team on campus while Northwestern will able to do the same thing at Wrigley Field. Other Northwestern athletic programs also will get to play at the ballpark.
