Northwestern football has set their sights on getting back to a bowl game in the 2015 season. After making five straight the Wildcats have missed the postseason two seasons in a row. Pat Fitzgerald will return 15 starters but will have to replace the all-important quarterback position. While the quarterback competition between Zack Oliver, Matt Alviti, and Clayton Thorson is not totally complete, Northwestern will heavily rely on running back Justin Jackson to carry the load on offense. Jackson will look to improve off of a stellar freshmen season where he averaged 98.9 all-purpose yards a game. The Northwestern defense has already been tabbed as the most talented defense in the Fitzgerald era. The 2015 schedule kicks off at home against Stanford, which could be a non-conference match-up to make a statement in. The Northwestern Wildcats operate under head coach Pat Fitzgerald at Ryan Field in Evanston, Illinois. NU’s football program struggled throughout most of its history, but that all changed in 1995. Since then, they’ve made ten bowl appearances and won at least a share of the Big Ten three times. A 10-3 season in 2012 was the team’s best since a 10-2 run to the Rose Bowl in which they were ranked #3 nationally at one point. All time, they’ve sent 178 players to the NFL including Chris Hinton, Barry Cofield, Luis Castillo, Nick Roach, Corey Wootton, and Mike Kafka. The program’s improvement in the last few decades have made the school a legitimate option for most of the talented recruits in the greater Chicago area, home to many future NFL stars. Its successful branding campaign as “Chicago’s Big Ten Team” has furthered local interest in the team like never before. And because the Wildcats have maintained their extremely high student athlete academic standards, these players are getting the full experience. 2015 home games include Stanford, Eastern Illinois, Ball State, Minnesota, Iowa, Penn State, Purdue, and the neutral game just a Purple and Red Line trip away, at Soldier Field vs city rival Illinois.
