Northwestern couldn’t clinch the Big Ten West division today as they were upset by Michigan State, 29-20.

A 17-6 halftime deficit was too much for the Wildcats to overcome and they’ll surely be sliding down the polls as they were No. 8 in the country going into this game.

Quarterback Peyton Ramsey had his worst game of the season as he went 21-for-43 with 223 yards with no touchdown passes and two interceptions. He was one of the main reasons why the Wildcats just couldn’t put it together today.

With their first loss of the season now, here’s what head coach Pat Fitzgerald had to say after the game.

Northwestern’s next chance to punch their ticket to the Big Ten Championship game will come next Saturday against Minnesota. The time and television info are still yet to be determined for the game.
