NU Takes: Takeaways from Northwestern’s win over Indiana State

This shouldn’t have ever been close.

In this week’s episode of NU Takes, hosts Michael Barthelemy and Didi Jin discuss Northwestern’s 24-6 victory over Indiana State. While the Wildcats may have came away with the victory, the Sycamores came away with the spread.

Northwestern was favored heavily in this game, as most Power Five programs are against FCS opponents, yet had offensive troubles after the first quarter. Despite a strong performance by the defense and special teams, the ‘Cats had trouble putting points on the board.

Are Northwestern’s offensive struggles against a weak opponent reasons to be concerned? Are these the typical September struggles or a reason to worry? What positives should fans take away from this win?

All this and more on this week’s NU Takes.
