Happy New Year, everyone!
Thank you for following along with us throughout all of 2020 and Northwestern’s football season, in particular. It’s been quite the ride, and it will all culminate in a New Year’s Day showdown this afternoon between the No. 14 Wildcats (6-2) and the Auburn Tigers (6-4). The two teams made the trip down south to Orlando in hopes of returning home with a Citrus Bowl title, which would be the Wildcats’ best bowl win since the 1948-49 season.
Make sure you know how to watch because we’ve got a good one in store.
