Hello Big Ten Nation, and welcome to Northwestern! 

I'm Kristin Scharkey, and I'll be keeping you updated on all the happenings around Evanston right here on the Mobile Tour blog, YouTube and Twitter

We are so happy to be hosting the Big Ten's Honoring Legends, Building Leaders Mobile Tour this week as we gear up to play Penn State on Saturday. It's Homecoming weekend here in Evanston, so it should make for a great few days filled with thousands of alumni, lots of purple and of course, Wildcat football. What more could you want? 

To celebrate Homecoming, we've got tons of events going on around campus. On Thursday at 8 p.m., The Second City-- the heart and soul of Chicago comedy that includes alumni such as Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert and Tina Fey-- will be performing in our own Cahn Auditorium. The Gridiron Network Football Lunch will take place at 11:30 a.m. Friday morning for those who want to participate in a reunion tradition and eat lunch with Head Football Coach Pat Fitzgerald and our team captains. And later Friday night, the infamous Homecoming Parade and Pep Rally will be celebrated down Sheridan Road and in Deering Meadow. Word on the street is that the Tour's RV and the new Stagg-Paterno Championship Trophy will be making an appearance in the parade!

In the meantime, the Big Ten Mobile Tour will be making its rounds, starting at Norris Student Center on Thursday morning. Here's where the RV and trophy will be throughout the weekend:
