Northwestern University


Former coach Randy Walker (1954-2006), who led the Wildcats from 1999-2005, provided a huge boost to the morality of the Northwestern football program. The school honored him by naming the road northwest of Ryan Field “Walker Way.” Two and a half hours before kickoff, fans line Walker Way, or gather on Randy Walker Terrace inside the stadium overlooking Walker Way, The NUMB forms a tunnel for the team, playing the fight song as the players and coaches arrive at Ryan Field; a tradition known as “Walk With Us.”
