Episode 441: Michigan State 29-Northwestern 20
Did it suck to lose to MSU? Sure. Was it frustrating to have the possibility of a playoff berth dashed? Damn straight it was.

Episode 440: Northwestern 17-Wisconsin 7
We expected a defensive, low-scoring, pound-it-out slugfest of a game and this did not disappoint. Northwestern unleashed its stifling defense and shut down the Badgers almost entirely, cementing the Cats' place on top of the Big Ten West. With only 3 games left, NU is certainly in the driver's seat for their second Big Ten Championship appearance in three years. But this game felt even bigger than that. It has been a long time since the Cats have been on a stage this big with this much on the line and came out on top, so it's worth savoring.

Episode 439: Northwestern 27-Purdue 20
We're halfway through the season and NU passed their biggest test to date. The Purdue offense is as dynamic as any we'll see all season and the Cat's D was up to the challenge. Keeping David Bell in check and only allowing 2 total yards rushing, Northwestern held on for another one-possession victory.
