Episode 472: Michigan 33-Northwestern 7

It was a tale of two halves in Ann Arbor last week. While the Cats hung in there for the first half, the second half was a different story as Michigan took their decisive time of possession advantage and wore the NU defense down. Now we enter the heart of the western division schedule as we take on the Gophers this Saturday afternoon. For the first time in several years, all three of us will be in attendance! We are your premier Northwestern Sports Podcast! You can download the episode from iTunes or directly from here.
