The No. 17 ranked Northwestern Wildcats will be playing for their 15th straight non-conference win on Saturday.
While Northwestern has gone 2-0 to start the season head coach Pat Fitzgerald has made it clear his thoughts on the program.
“There’s nobody walking around here feeling we’ve arrived, I can promise you that,” Fitzgerald said. “We are far from the team we’re capable of being in all three phases.”
On Saturday Northwestern hosts the Western Michigan Broncos (0-2) at Ryan Field in Evanston, IL. Coverage of this game will air on the Big Ten Network beginning at 9:00 pm ET/8:00 pm CT.
The Northwestern Wildcats are a 30.5 point favorite against the Western Michigan Broncos. The over/under for this game is 58 total points.
An interesting thing to watch in this one will be turnovers. Northwestern has recorded seven interceptions though its first two games and the quarterbacks on Western Michigan have combined to throw five.
