Oct. 27, 1923: The first night game involving a current NCAA FBS (I-A) member occurs in Chicago. It also signifies the first Big Ten Conference “day-night doubleheader.” Chicago downs Purdue 20-6 at Stagg Field in the afternoon, and Illinois tops Northwestern 29-0 at Soldier Field that evening as portable lights are set up at the venerable structure.
