Northwestern’s bowl hopes took a big hit with an opening non-conference loss to Western Michigan. They’ve likely ensured themselves of needing to win at least four Big Ten games to make the postseason, and that reflects in the latest bowl projections. CBS’s Jerry Palm maintained his vote of confidence in Northwestern, while ESPN’s experts believe the Wildcats are on a downwards trend.
