Northwestern’s offense struggled throughout 2015. It’s first game of 2016 wasn’t any different.
For just the fourth time in program history, Northwestern has won 10 games in a single season.
Despite forcing five Wisconsin turnovers and holding the Badgers to a negative rushing total, it looked like Northwestern was going to lose. It looked that way a couple times, actually.
Northwestern turned the ball over three times on Saturday, but its defense bailed it out.
EVANSTON — It was the game that got away. But then the Cats got it back.
