EVANSTON — If nothing else, Tuesday night served as a perfect indication of just how much difference a year has made for Northwestern and Wisconsin.
After winning a mighty entertaining national championship game on Monday night, it was no surprise that Alabama earned the country's No.
Before the season started, Chris Collins already dubbed Northwestern freshman Aaron Falzon as one of the best shooters in the Big Ten.
For the second straight game, Northwestern was ice cold. And for the second straight game, that meant a loss.
No, bowl season was not an unmitigated disaster for the Big Ten.
