Northwestern issues injury report for Indiana game, two starters listed as out
In search of their second win of the season, the Northwestern Wildcats will travel to Bloomington to face the Indiana Hoosiers (6-2) on Saturday at 7:00PM ET on FS1.
Unfortunately for Pat Fitzgerald’s reeling squad, the Wildcats will have to try to pull off the upset without two starters.

The FBS’ lowest-scoring offense at just 10.7 points per game, Northwestern could use all the help they can get.
A sophomore from Sidney, Ohio, Isaiah Bowser led the Wildcats in rushing as a freshman with 866 yards on 197 carries (4.4 AVG). Redshirt freshman Drake Anderson has filled that role this season, rushing the football 92 times for 436 yards (4.7 AVG).
A classmate of Bowser, J.J. Jefferson is the Wildcats’ second-leading receiver with 155 yards – one-yard behind redshirt junior Riley Lees.
Since beating UNLV on September 14, Northwestern has slipped into a five-game losing streak. In order to avoid tying the worst mark of his 14-year tenure, Fitzgerald’s team will need to win four of their last games.
