Cats End Season With Embarrassing Loss In Outback Bowl

If you woke up late on New Year’s Day, you aren’t alone. It appears as if the Northwestern Wildcats football team may have as well.

Wildcats Show Little Fight In Loss To Iowa

After a miracle 5-0 start to the season, Northwestern needed to prove the loss to Michigan was just an anomaly. Just the opposite happened today against Iowa, as the Cats fell hard 40-10. Once a top 15 team in the country, NU’s time in the top 25 will likely come to an end. Also likely... Read more »
