Wildcat Night Across the Country, Friday, October 18, 2002


LIVE on Fox Sports Net

NMU alumni across the country gathered around the TV and watched as the Wildcats trounced the MSU Spartans, 10-4, on Friday, October 18, 2002.

Fox Sports Detroit visited the Berry Events Center for the first time ever and broadcast the game live throughout Michigan, Wisconsin and Indiana.

In addition, NMU alumni gathered in restaurants and homes throughout the country and tuned in.

What a game! It was Rick Comley's first visit back to the Berry since leaving the 'Cats and taking over as coach of the Spartans.

Did he get a "Welcome Back" or what?

Here are some of the photo highlights.
