I was able to attend a college football game at Ryan Field in Evanston, Illinois, on Saturday, September 16, 2017. The Northwestern Wildcats played the Bowling Green Falcons. The Northwestern football team beat Bowling Green by a score of 49 to 7. Northwestern University quarterback Clayton Thorson threw for 370 yards, running back Justin Jackson ran for 121 yards, and receiver Garrett Dickerson gained 150 yards on nine catches.

I walked around the Northwestern University campus a bit before the game as the weather was very nice as it was mostly sunny and in the 80s. Below are some pictures while at Northwestern including some of the recent construction projects on campus and football action.

I was able to attend a college football game at Camp Randall in Madison, Wisconsin, on Saturday, November 27, 2010. Northwestern played Wisconsin with Wisconsin trying to win to secure a share of the Big Ten Title.

As expected Wisconsin ran up the score in an attempt to further prove it is worthy of a Rose Bowl trip. The Badgers beat the Wildcats by a score of 70 to 23. Fortunately for Northwestern, the Wisconsin starting quarterback Scott Tolzien was taken out early in the 4th quarter and no further points were scored by the Badgers. Here are some pictures I took of the game.

I wanted to update everyone on the Northwestern University Men’s Basketball and Football teams and their progress so far as of Christmas 2009. Happy Holidays to all!

Thus far I have been very impressed with both team’s play.

The Northwestern Men’s Basketball team is 10-1. The only loss is a home loss to a ranked Butler team. Big Ten play starts against Illinois on December 30th, 2009.

Two good articles to read on the Basketball team are at http://sports.espn.go.com/chicago/columns/story?columnist=powers_scott&id=4766881 and http://sports.espn.go.com/ncb/columns/story?columnist=katz_andy&id=4766773.

Hopefully this will be the first time the basketball team makes the NCAA march madness tournament as many are predicting at this point.

Andy Katz at ESPN.com writes.

…Northwestern, for the first time ever, will be in the Dance. The Wildcats won’t be on the bubble, either. I predict NU will be in the field by the last week of the regular season.

Moving on to the Northwestern University 2009 Football Team. The Wildcats finished the regular season at 8-4.

The Wildcats will be playing the Auburn University Tigers at the Outback Bowl in Tampa, Florida, on January 1, 2010 at 10 AM CST and shown nationally on ESPN. I plan to be in attendance at the game and cheering on the wildcats for hopefully their first bowl win.

Northwestern is looking for it’s first bowl win since 1949. Here is a picture of the team celebrating a win at Purdue earlier this season.
