At long last, the day is here. For some, that may mean their first Northwestern home game as first-years in the Class of 2025 (or sophomores in the Class of 2024). For others, it’s the day they’ve been waiting for since last Saturday, when an embarrassing first half performance against the Duke Blue Devils signaled that this Wildcat football season might be on the verge of an all-out collapse. Thus, today’s game between Northwestern and the 0-3 Ohio Bobcats serves as a litmus test for just how trepidatious fans should be with conference play just around the corner.
To follow along during this tension-filled outing, join us in the comments below and cross your fingers that the ‘Cats leave the field today having leapt back up to a .500 record.
