I did a post at the JCB today where I refute some of the notion that Northwestern is just a lucky team, while previewing them a bit for the upcoming season.
Not to be a spoiler, but I project an 9-3 record, 5-3 in Big 10 play.
I see wins over at Vandy, Illinois State, at Rice, Central Michigan, at Minnesota, at Indiana, Purdue, Michigan State and Illinois.
Losses at Penn State, at Wisconsin and at Iowa.
Another good bowl game for Fitz and his Cats.
(whoops. forgot a game. at vandy. included it as a win, adjusted accordingly.....although it would only be the second time in 40 years where NW has won all their OOC games. 8 wins for sure, but 9 is a strong possibility for the regular season)
