Bowl Preview: Northwestern vs. Pitt

Remember when Northwestern football was synonomous with ineptitude? It wasn’t really that long ago.

But under head coach and former linebacking star Pat Fitzgerald, the Wildcats are consistently at or near the top half of the BIG. This year a 6-6 campaign netted Northwestern a date in the Pinstripe Bowl with Pitt led by head coach and former Michigan State defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi. The Panthers (8-4) will be a touch matchup against the Wildcats given Pitt defeated both Clemson and Penn State this year, two of the top five ranked teams at the end of the regular season.
