Northwestern vs. Michigan: The Wildcats lost in triple overtime, dammit

A horrible season gets worse for Northwestern as they fall to Michigan to go to 0-6 on the season.

I don't really know what to say.

This Northwestern football season has been the least enjoyable thing I've ever borne witness to.

People say things like "this is the worst football game I've ever watched" a lot. But I genuinely think this was the worst football game I've ever watched in regulation. The only reason Devin Gardner didn't throw any interceptions is because NU dropped about seven. The Wildcats and Wolverines only got into the red zone a few times, and collectively failed to score touchdowns on all of them.

Of course, because there's a god of football and he hates us all and wants us to be unhappy, Michigan ran a awful, terrible two-minute drill, and somehow managed to have their holder slide in for a game-tying field goal to make it 9-9 going into overtime. Yes, we had to watch another Northwestern overtime game.

Then we had to watch a Northwestern double overtime game.

Then we had to watch a Northwestern triple overtime game.
