Here’s a disappointed Wildcats team that missed a bowl for a second consecutive season for the first time since 2007. That 10-win 2012 season now feels like distant memory. QB Trevor Siemian is now a Denver Bronco, but he wasn’t all that effective in leading the Big Ten’s third-lowest scoring offense. Justin Jackson (1,187 rush yards, 10 TDs) is an important holdover, as are big returning receivers Christian Jones, Dan Vitale, and Garrett Dickerson, some of NU’s leaders in recent years. But they’ve got an even better defense, perhaps the best in recent years. They need to pressure the quarterback more but force ample turnovers. You’re never in good shape when you start 0-2, and the Cats did just that last dropping games to Cal and NIU. But Northwestern responded in impressive fashion in two straight wins and then a major home upset of #17 Wisconsin. The 2015 schedule kicks off at home against Stanford, which could be a non-conference matchup 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.
