NIU reveals 50th anniversary logo of Huskie Stadium

By Northern Star staff

NIU Athletics unveiled today its logo celebrating the 50th anniversary of Huskie Stadium.

The 2015 season will mark the 50 anniversary of Huskie Stadium, NIU’s on-campus football stadium. The stadium opened Nov. 6, 1965, when NIU beat Illinois State, 48-6, on Homecoming.

The logo was created by Rick Cerrone Communications and graphic artist Michael Macchione. The commemorative logo incorporates an image of the west-side grandstands, the current Huskies logo and the number 50.

NIU is 163-96-2 all time at Huskie Stadium and has won 30 of its last 31 games on its home turf.

The Huskies open the 2015 season against the Nevada-Las Vegas Rebels Sept. 5.
