Northwestern is still in the hunt for a bowl game after winning at Notre Dame last week. To get to six wins, the Wildcats need to win out. Their first task is handling Purdue on the road. The Boilermakers are bad, but they're better than they were a year ago. This isn't a guarantee game for Northwestern; it'll need to move the ball, tackle in space, limit turnovers and generally do the stuff good teams do to take care of inferior opponents to get its first conference road win since September. Can the Wildcats do it? Yes. Will they? Hmmmm.
