What other media are saying:
EVANSTON, Ill. Wildcats scored 13 points in the second half but knocked Nebraska out of the way and have not allowed their opponents to score in the second half this season.
Northwestern leads the Big Ten with nine mandatory transfers, a key part of Pat Fitzgerald’s teams. Wildcats picked up two interceptions in the second half giving them the lead.
“Our defenses saved us,”; said Fitzgerald.
The unbroken defense system appeared especially large in the Northwest Territories. Nebraska dribbled within NU’s 25-yard line seven times. The streak ends with two goals on the field, one miss, one touch, two interceptions and one penalty shootout.
Cornhuskers’s lone ball touch was only 3 yards away after being intercepted.
At the end of the third quarter, Nebraska drove to Wildcats 25, but Brandon Joseph blocked Adrian Martinez in the last area. It was Joseph’s third pick of the season.
When Northwestern took a 21-13 lead in the fourth half, Nebraska drove to the 3-yard mark, but Chris Bergin made a 6:05 interception.
Nebraska amassed a total of 442 yards – 125 yards more than Northwestern – but only had one touch.
