Despite Northwestern falling to Duke 31-23, QB Ryan Hilinski was on a hot streak, setting records on Saturday.

Late in the game, Hilinski led the team down the field for 80 yards, capping off that drive with a touchdown pass to Donny Navarro III. With that throw, Hilinski surpassed 300 yards to go down in the history books. Hilinski was the first quarterback since Clayton Thorson in 2018 to throw for 300 yards in a game, doing that in Week 0.

With his Week 2 performance, Hilinski is now the first Wildcat QB to throw for 300+ yards in the first two games of a season.

The Wildcats weren’t short on yardage, as Hilinski helped land a whopping 511 yards of offense. Hilinski finished the day completing 36-of-60 passes for 435 yards and 2 TDs.

Although the Wildcats didn’t come away with a team win, Hilinski certainly won on a personal record level. The sophomore QB will look to continue his hot streak as Northwestern takes on Southern Illinois next Saturday.
