Gif: Ellis pick

Ellis

Shades of last season as Collin Ellis came up with a beautiful interception to get NU back in the game and set up a touchdown on the next play.

A TD!

NU finally got on the board with a 54-yard touchdown pass from Siemian to Dickerson.

Nick VanHoose drilled a Cal receiver ... but then gave up a big gain and let in the touchdown.

NU's specialists are out and wearing the purple jerseys with black plants. They have their normal purple N helmets on the ground, too. Cal looks to be wearing its normal road whites.

Where you will get NU-Cal

Via Jon Davis, here is an absolutely terrible map of where you will get NU-Cal on ABC and where you will get it on ESPN2, since this is one of those flex games.

In case you can't tell from the very clear contrasting colors, Chicagoland, the very northwest part of Indiana, Central Illinois, Northern Illinois, Eastern Iowa and the Bay Area all get the game on ABC. The rest of the country will see it on ESPN2. The game will also be available online at Watch ESPN.

Pat Fitzgerald wants to talk about his young men.

As we pointed out in our terms sheet, Pat Fitzgerald loves to talk about his "young men." Basically, it's a way to point out that Fitz doesn't just coach football players, he turns them into terrific ... well ... young men. According to the ASAP Sports transcript, Fitz said the term six times during his opening 15 minute media session — a little over once every two minutes. To contrast that, he said "Northwestern" and "Big Ten" just twice each. During the breakout sessions, which are not transcribed, he said it even more ... up to 10 times, according to Paul Banks. We might not get football for another month, but it's great to see that Fitz's talking points are in midseason form.

Hey, look, another new scoreboard!

From Teddy G.:

NU fans attending basketball games, volleyball matches and wrestling meets will notice a center-hung two-sided display board covering 300 square feet. Boards mounted on the east and west walls will cover 238 square feet.

For reference, the current video board at Ryan Field is 390 square feet (new one will be 1100).

Hey, look, a new scoreboard!

Northwestern Athletics announced today (Monday) significant upgrades to the in-stadium video display capabilities in Ryan Field, with plans to nearly triple the size of the existing videoboard and install new LED ribbon boards overlooking both the north and south end zones.

Now, we just need to see Fitz and a few players use the new video board to replicate this great bit from Conan O'Brien.
