Episode 468: Northwestern 35-Ohio 6

A lot of things went right in Northwestern’s big win over Ohio, but there are definitely still some things to work on and questions to be answered. This week, the Cats head west to Lincoln to take on Nebraska under the lights. Nebraska’s Defense is much improved, but is there a blueprint to moving the ball against them? Can Adrian Martinez be stopped by anyone other than himself? You can download the episode from iTunes or directly from here.

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 399: Wisconsin 24-Northwestern 15

Frustrations abound with the Northwestern offense after another lackluster game plan against Wisconsin. The defense balled out, but giving up 2 defensive scores to Wisconsin really drove the final nail in the coffin. Will a porous Nebraska defense be the cure for what ails the Cats?
