Northwestern nearly made a comeback but was really nowhere close to reclaiming the HAT and reaching a bowl game. Illinois trounced NU in the season finale.
There is a special hat on the line this week. Not just the LOL. This week we honor the bowler hat because one of us is going bowling.
A rare relaxed fourth quarter for Northwestern, as the team blows out Purdue on the road to get one win from bowl eligibility. But they may have to do it without Trevor Siemian.
Hide your trash cans, West Lafayette, Pat Fitzgerald is coming back to town. He is hankering to get his team to a bowl game and no one is safe.
It was far from perfect. It won’t mean a trip to Pasadena. But Northwestern kept bragging rights over Notre Dame with an incredible 11-point turnaround and an overtime victory in South Bend.
It’s Notre Dame eve as well as the men’s basketball opening night. Before we tip off the season, we tip off our picks for Saturday’s B1G action.
