I guarantee that this Cubs won’t just be studying for an exam this week.

Ben Larson is a student at the University of Illinois. He’s also a Cubs fan, who scored tickets for Wednesday’s Wild Card Game in Pittsburgh.

Cool, right?

Then he remembered he had an exam on Thursday. Man, what to do? Larson made a plea to his professor to move the exam back and it was granted.

There will always be midterms. Can’t say the same for Cubs playoff games, right?
