Report: Soldier Field to host doubleheader in ’12-13

The Wisconsin State Journal has reported that Chicago’s Soldier Field may be hosting an outdoor doubleheader next season.

Wisconsin would play Minnesota, while Miami and Notre Dame would also take the ice at the home of the NFL’s Chicago Bears.

“In order to make this work, we’d have to play Thursday night at the Kohl Center and give both teams a chance to practice in Chicago,” said Mike Cerniglia, the assistant to UW athletic director Barry Alvarez who helped coordinate the Camp Randall outdoor game between Wisconsin and Michigan in 2010.

Talks for this potential event are still in the early stages, the story added.
