Northwestern, 27, Eastern Michigan, 24.


I'm not going to act like that's a good win. We played a team we were much better than, and then showed we were much better than them by dropping 21 on them in the first half.

Then, stuff got real. We almost choked away a game against a team that went 3-9 in the MAC last year. We gave up 120 yards rushing to something called a Dwayne Priest. This game is not something to be proud of, and this team has some major, major issues heading into next week.

But at the end of the day, we just got to watch the Wildcats win a game on a last second field goal, and we remembered what it feels like to involuntarily throw your hands up to celebrate a football team scoring. And that's a good thing.

I'll have a detailed game wrap-up either tonight or tomorrow, so, we'll deal with that then. All praise be to Stefan Demos.
