Admission to all three games is free to fans. Stadium seating is available at Chicago State while limited bleacher seating is available at Wheaton.

The Friday and Saturday games against the Bulls will be played at Chicago State with first pitch set for 5 p.m. both days. The Huskies will follow the Cougars games with South Dakota State on Friday and Saturday, which both begin at 1 p.m.

Sunday’s series finale between NIU and UB will be played at Wheaton College, beginning at 1 p.m.

Should Friday’s or Saturday’s games be postponed because of weather, a doubleheader will be played Sunday at Wheaton with times still to be determined.
