Every player matters when it comes to the B1G Championship Game. And Northwestern could have kicker Charlie Kuhbander back on the field.
Teddy Greenstein of the Chicago Tribune reported that Kuhbander, who has missed five games this season due to injury, has been cleared to participate. He has made 3-of-7 kicks this season and is 21-of-21 on extra point tries.
Kuhbander has not attempted a kick since Nov. 3.
#Northwestern PK Charlie Kuhbander has been cleared, I'm told. So NU might not have to use a punter for FGs
