Badgers v. Northwestern   no comments

Posted at 6:08 pm in Sports









Hoping to become bowl eligible for the 17th straight year the Badgers take on Northwestern Saturday at 11:00 am at Ryan Field.  They have the longest active bowl streak in the Big Ten at 16.  The task will not be easy but it never is against the Wildcats.  Northwestern comes into the game with an overall record of 4-3 but they are 4-1 in conference play.   Like the Badgers their only conference loss was at the hands of Michigan.   This came will play a huge role in determining the winner of the West Division.  Last year the Badgers beat Northwestern at Camp Randall 33-24.  The Badgers are ahead in the series 59-35-5.  The Wildcats are coached by Pat Fitzgerald who is in his 13th year as the head man and has a record of 91-68.  Fitzgerald starred at linebacker for the Wildcats in the mid-1990s, helping to lead the team to a 10–1 regular season record in 1995 and a berth in the 1996 Bowl.  Northwestern’s mascot is Willie the Wildcat and their fight song is Go U Northwestern.
