Northwestern releases teaser trailer for new lakeside facility

Northwestern University’s football team is talented, but has the misfortune of being a small fish in a big pond.

Tennessee dominates Northwestern in Outback Bowl

Last season, the Tennessee Volunteers won a second-tier January bowl game in the state of Florida against an opponent from the Big Ten West.

Northwestern QB punks students by asking them questions about him

The Northwestern Wildcats had an improbable 2015 season. The team started the year 5-0 and had one of the best defenses in the country at that point in the year. They won their last five games and finished the regular season 10-2, a terrific year that not many people expected. While their defense carried the team most of the year and running back Justin Jackson was their biggest...

The Northwestern Wildcats are one of the pleasant surprises so far this season, not only for the Big Ten but for college football as a whole.

From there, the Wildcats have quietly taken care of business, picking up a quality road victory against...
