The ‘Cats have an opportunity to be a .500 team at week six. After hanging with No. 6 Penn State for the first half last Saturday, Northwestern takes on an unfamiliar foe in Howard. The Wildcats are heavily favored, and a win would be a good way to avenge last year’s loss against Southern Illinois — another FCS team.
