Northwestern vs. Illinois Game Thread

Pat Fitzgerald can tie Pappy Waldorf's record for most wins as a head coach at Northwestern, plus, senior day, plus ninth win of the season and Outback Bowl, plus LOLhat! Talk about it!

It's Northwestern's last game of the regular season, and they have a chance to whoop the heck out of Illinois.

NU has a chance for its ninth win of the season, Illinois has a chance for its ninth loss in a row. Every single picker at both this site and at The Champaign Room chose Northwestern to win. It's senior day, and 24 players, including some important figures for the Wildcats, will play their final home game at Northwestern. NU can stay in contention for the Outback Bowl if they win. This game is huge, and could be awesome if it plays out the way it should.

Note the omnipresent Patrick Ward nutshot .GIFs on the front page. They are all we need. They are all we ever need. Feel free to post them ad nauseum in the comments, but remember to put a subject so people can minimize them to slow down page loads.

Go Cats, get that LOLhat!
