POLL: Predict Northwestern’s Big Ten record in 2017

New, 1 comment

Non-conference play was tough, but the slate has been wiped clean.

NCAA Football: Bowling Green at Northwestern Patrick Gorski-USA TODAY Sports

Northwestern managed to take care of business against Nevada and Bowling Green, but got blown out by Duke in non-conference play. With the Big Ten starting conference games this week, we thought it would be a good time to reassess our expectations for this season.

Thus, we have a poll! Vote on what you think Northwestern’s B1G record will be in 2017. Can Northwestern go 6-3 or even 7-2? Will the Wildcats fade in the early part of the season and go 3-6 or 4-5? Teams like Purdue and Maryland look much improved from last season, and there’s a case to be made that the Big Ten is the deepest conference in college football this year.

Here’s a look at the schedule, as a reminder:

9/30 - @ Wisconsin

10/7 - Penn State

10/14 - @Maryland

10/21 - Iowa

10/28 - Michigan State

11/4 - @ Nebraska

11/11 - Purdue

11/18 - Minnesota

11/25 @ Illinois

Northwestern gets five home games this year, which should be a bonus.
