One Northwestern LB already confirms return for 2021, QB Peyton Ramsey still considering options
While the Northwestern offense has been struggling a bit over the last three games, against Auburn in Friday’s Citrus Bowl, quarterback Peyton Ramsey broke loose and posted his best game in a Wildcat uniform, and it may, or may not be his last.
After the game, Ramsey indicated to WGN Radio that he hasn’t yet decided on his future in Evanston.

Ramsey threw for a season-hgh 291 yards, completing 24 of 35 passes, and tossed in a season-high 50 yards rushing. He was involved in four Wildcats touchdowns.
Linebacker Chris Bergin is more certain of his plans.
Bergin had three tackles and six assist against the Tigers in Orlando, and told WGN Radio that he’s not done yet at Northwestern.
Ramsey says it's too early to know whether he's returning next season but says he's super high on young guys who made plays today like Bryce Kirtz, Wayne Dennis and Ray Niro.

As a freshman Bergin played primarily on special teams, and was one of only 13 first-year players to take the field that year for the Wildcats. Over the next two seasons, as an every-game player he made 137 tackles and 9.0 tackles for loss.
Bergin is a finalist for the 2020 Burlsworth Trophy.
