Northwestern overcomes three late turnovers to stun Illinois

Illinois was in desperate need of a statement game to validate their No. 23 ranking after suffering a 95-70 drubbing at Wisconsin earlier in the week. Driving a couple of hours over to Evanston to face the 7-9 Northwestern Wildcats, the Illini were expected to do just that—but once again, the Illini didn’t live up to their expectations. After trailing by ten earlier in the second half, Illinois freshman Ken ...

A Fine Evening in Evanston. Northwestern 48 Syracuse 27

Injuries in last week's game left questions for Northwestern looking ahead. Cornerback Daniel Jones was lost for the season, then Star players QB Kain Colter and RB Venric Mark were listed as day-to-day. Kain Colter (Concussion) was questionable but still made the start. Venric Mark (lower body) did not play, perhaps being saved for conference play in a couple weeks when Ohio State comes to town. Until then ...

Big Ten Breakdown: Week 6

Before I get rolling on this week's games, how scary is this Nebraska program going to be next year in the Big Ten?  What they did to that Kansas State squad on Thursday shouldn't be considered legal.  Okay, enough drooling, onto the games that matter. The Big Ten will kick off their second week of conference play, with just one game between ranked teams, but a couple others with wire potential.  Iowa is th ...
