Twitter: 'Mandatory Cat Nap' for Wildcats on Saturday

It’s no secret college kids like to nap after an early-morning obligation. The Northwestern football team is no different. The Wildcats will take a “Mandatory Cat Nap” at 9:30 a.m. CT Saturday prior to its 2:30 p.m. game against Nebraska. Head coach Pat Fitzgerald tweeted out the news Wednesday, and the nap is sandwiched between position meetings and the pre-game meal.

Here’s the tweet:

Wild idea, huh? But Fitzgerald wasn’t happy with how his team performed in its 2:30 game against Boston College, so he wants to make sure they’re rested for the big-time Legends Division matchup.

Throughout Saturday’s game, we’ll provide live quarterly recaps on our Nebraska at Northwestern page. Bookmark the page now and come back during the action.
