NORTHWESTERN WON A GAME! NORTHWESTERN WON A BIG TEN FOOTBALL GAME! HAHAHAHAHAHA! I FORGOT IT WAS POSSIBLE!

It was a pretty eneverating game, as all the Wildcats things that always happen, you know, happened. Northwestern tried as hard as it could to blow multiple double-digit leads. But the offense looked better than it had all year, and we got ourselves a hat.

Hat. Hat hat hat hat hat hat hat. Hat hat hat hat hat hat hat hat hat hat hat hat hat hat hat hat hat hat hat hat hat hat hat hat hat hat hat hat. Let us play Monopoly, because we have a damn hat.

It means nothing in the grand scheme of things, because 1-7 is the same as 0-8 if you're not bowling. But it was nice to see the seniors get themselves a W. It was nice to see Trevor Siemian and his receivers link up over and over and over again. And dammit, it was nice to get hat.
