Season in review: Wildcats football

If not for blowing leads against Nebraska, at Penn State and at Michigan, Northwestern may have gone 12-0. The defense was a big reason for Northwestern pushing its bowl streak to a school-record five seasons in a row. Players like LB David Nwabuisi, E Tyler Scott, LB Chi Chi Ariguzo, LB Damien Proby and S Ibraheim Campbell stood out for a team that showed better toughness. The Wildcats ranked ninth in the Big Ten in total defense (385.3 ypg); last year they were 11th (407.7 ypg). The future is bright, as this is a young team. Read more season reviews
