Don’t bet against the Wildcats.
New Orleans Saints quarterback and future Hall of Famer Drew Brees learned that the hard way. In a picture posted by former Northwestern receiver and current Saint Austin Carr, Brees is rocking a Northwestern shirt after his Boilermakers lost 23-13 to the Wildcats last Saturday.
Brees, the third-leading passer in NFL history, went 3-0 against Northwestern as a starter, including a 5-touchdown performance in 2000. But hey, LOOK WHO GOT THE LAST LAUGH.
Also, Saints, please play Carr more. He is good.
This isn’t the first time a future HOFer has lost a bet with a former Wildcat. It happened to JJ Watt (via Brian Peters) when Northwestern beat Wisconsin in 2015.
