The Wildcats are set for their spooky Halloween matchup with the Iowa Hawkeyes as they look to advance to 2-0 on the year. After Northwestern’s demolition of Maryland under the Ryan Field lights and Iowa’s loss to Purdue last weekend, Northwestern will look to steal a win on the road at Kinnick Stadium.
New starters Peyton Ramsey and Spencer Petras will go head-to-head in the Wildcats’ first divisional matchup of the year — a game which could have significant implications in the Big Ten West standings with Wiscovid sidelined and Minnesota in an 0-2 hole.
A win this afternoon would be Northwestern’s first on Halloween in 61 years.
