Michael Jordan statue outside United Center dons Northwestern jersey

Gearing up for its big showdown against Ohio State, the Northwestern Wildcats are garnering support all over the city of Chicago. Now they have the Windy City’s greatest athlete on their side … kinda.

United Center officials put a Northwestern football jersey on the Michael Jordan statue outside of the arena. Wildcats fans hope His Airness can bring a little luck against the No. 4-ranked team in the nation.

With College GameDay coming to town, and the city rallying behind them, Chicago’s Big Ten team should be fired up on Saturday.
