- Preparations for tonight's game began Friday when the Wildside guarded The Rock and then painted it Purple!
A lot of the pregame buzz is surrounding Northwestern's uniform choice for this first of three straight games under the lights. The Wildcats are channeling Angus and Malcolm Young and the boys of AC/DC tonight with their garment choice. They're back in black!
- The team isn't the only group with special uniforms tonight. The NU Marching Band is breaking out new duds as well.
We're playing some football in Evanston as Denard Robinson uses his arm to get the Wolverines on the board first. He completed a 48-yard pass to Junior Hemmingway on a key third down and then found Steve Watson for a 9-yard touchdown a few plays later.
#PersaStrong is back again, but it's Kain Colter who gets the Wildcats on the scoreboard with a 15-yard touchdown run.The score was set up by a perfect strike from Persa to Drake Dunsmore for 26 yards.
- Ibraheim Campbell makes his first career interception and returns it 33 yards. Persa and the offense march the ball the rest of the way with Treyvon Green scoring his second rushing TD of the season from seven yards out.
