Episode 440: Northwestern 17-Wisconsin 7

We expected a defensive, low-scoring, pound-it-out slugfest of a game and this did not disappoint. Northwestern unleashed its stifling defense and shut down the Badgers almost entirely, cementing the Cats’ place on top of the Big Ten West. With only 3 games left, NU is certainly in the driver’s seat for their second Big Ten Championship appearance in three years. But this game felt even bigger than that. It has been a long time since the Cats have been on a stage this big with this much on the line and came out on top, so it’s worth savoring. We are your premier Northwestern Sports Podcast!

Episode 439: Northwestern 27-Purdue 20

We’re halfway through the season and NU passed their biggest test to date. The Purdue offense is as dynamic as any we’ll see all season and the Cat’s D was up to the challenge. Keeping David Bell in check and only allowing 2 total yards rushing, Northwestern held on for another one-possession victory. You can download the episode from iTunes or directly from here.

Episode 438: Northwestern 21-Nebraska 13

In what has become a very underrated rivalry, the battle of NU, Northwestern continued to show defensive dominance, especially in the second half, and knocked off the Cornhuskers. While the offense was shaky at times, the D has yet to allow a single point in the second half of any game this season. However, with the high flying Purdue Boilermakers on deck, can the Cats continue to pitch second half shutouts? You can download the episode from iTunes or directly from here.

Episode 437: Northwestern 21-Iowa 20

Going into this game, we said we knew who both Iowa and Northwestern were. We also know exactly how these two teams play one another. This year’s game was no departure from the norm. The Cats continue their streak of wins in Iowa City as we break it down. Then we look ahead to the red-headed stepchildren of the Big Ten, Nebraska.

Supporting Our Communities this B1G Season

A listener (Thanks Sam!) reached out to ask us about local pandemic-related charities to support while enjoying the return of the #B1GCats. This got us thinking about what we can do to support our community: we’ve decided to donate meals through Soul & Smoke each game week this year. We’re really excited about supporting this local Evanston business with deep Chicago ties — since March they have provided over 100,000 meals to those in need in the Chicago area, and are serving a critical need in our communities. Please read below and join us if you are able to give, either to Soul & Smoke or another community organization of your choosing.
