Pat Fitzgerald answers reporter’s phone at press conference

This Saturday, Northwestern hosts Ohio State. The College Gameday crew will be in town, and it's not a stretch to call this contest one of the biggest games in school history. During Wildcats coach Pat Fitzgerald's weekly press conference on Monday in Evanston, a reporter's cell phone sitting on the table Fitzgerald was sitting at rang. Of course, Fitzgerald answered the phone, had a brief conversation with the person on the line, and finished with his trademark, "go Cats!"

National media, Pat Fitzgerald. Pat Fitzgerald, national media. Nice to meet you.
