Pat Fitzgerald


Northwestern has its quarterback.

Redshirt freshman Clayton Thorson will start the Wildcats' season-opener against Stanford, head coach Pat Fitzgerald announced Thursday.


Northwestern’s defense ranked in the middle of the pack in the Big Ten last season. There were good weeks and bad weeks, games allowing six points and games allowing 48 points.


The last time we saw Christian Jones on the field in a game, he was shredding the Illinois defense to the tune of 13 catches for 182 receiving yards and a pair of touchdowns.


Who will be Northwestern’s starting quarterback when the Wildcats open the season against Stanford on Sept. 5?

You’re just going to have to wait and see.


The Northwestern unionization movement is officially no more.
