Though Northwestern is currently mired in a two-game losing streak and no longer has its AP Top 25 ranking, the Wildcats are still situated where nobody could have expected: tied for third place in the Big Ten with two games left. In a year where the team’s seniors have propelled Chris Collins’ squad, it’s only fitting that such a nucleus has a chance to earn a historic 12th conference victory in potentially the group’s final game in Evanston. Follow along here as the Wildcats battle with the 17-12 Penn State Nittany Lions.
