Northwestern's heading to the 2013 Las Vegas Invitational, likely to play either UCLA or Mizzou. It's probably the best preseason tourney NU has participated in of late.
Northwestern-Ohio State will be in primetime on October 5, and that means it could be prime fodder for College GameDay, everybody's favorite college football buffet starter/a show where a crazy dude puts on headwear.
Brian James knows Illinois well and has tons of experience as an NBA assistant - he'll apparently swap from Doug Collins' staff with the Philadelphia 76ers to Chris Collins', which would make him Northwestern's second of three assistants.
NORTHWESTERN WON A BOWL GAME! Let's talk about how great it feels.
A whopping nine Northwestern juniors won't be coming back for their senior years, including former starting QB Evan Watkins and superback Tim Riley, who caught a touchdown last week against Michigan State.
Northwestern needed four turnovers and some goal line stops, and still Michigan State had a chance to win with a last-minute drive, but unlike last week, the Wildcats stopped the Spartans and got their eighth win of the year.
