It is time. The culmination of Northwestern’s impressive pandemic season arrives in the form of the 2021 Citrus Bowl as the No. 14 Wildcats (6-2) take on Auburn (6-4) in a rematch of the thrilling 2010 Outback Bowl.

NU is down notable starters DE Eku Leota, CB Greg Newsome II and leading rushers Isaiah Bowser and Drake Anderson due to transfers and injury. The Tigers are without their leading rusher, SEC Freshman of the Year Tank Bigsby, as well as wide receiver Anthony Schwartz, cornerback Roger McCreary and nickel back Christian Tutt, per AL.com.
