Northwestern won the Big Ten West division by three games a season ago.
This year, it’s different.
The Wildcats have lost six straight games and are 1-7 overall. Last year’s success has not translated over to this year. That said, Northwestern isn’t giving up. Coach Pat Fitzgerald isn’t just going to lay over.
Northwestern will continue to fight, and on Saturday, it hosts Purdue for what is being deemed as Heroes Day. On Thursday, ahead of the B1G matchup, the Wildcats revealed their threads for the game:
