July 7th marked the 11th year that Pat Fitzgerald has been head coach of the Northwestern Wildcats. In the last 11 seasons, he has become the winningest coach in Northwestern history, made seven bowl games, and has ended the season in the AP Top 25 twice. It’s been quite a ride.

Our question to you in this Inside NU reader poll is which football game of the past 11 years has been “the best” or “most memorable”. We’ve picked some options below, but feel free to add some ones we missed in the comment section. The home team is listed first in our options.
