Cats Cover ‘Cuse

The Northwestern Wildcats continue on their collision course with the Ohio State Buckeyes on October 5th.

The Wildcats rolled the Orangemen of Syracuse by a final score of 48-27. The Wildcats were a 16.5 point favorite in the game and are now 2-0 against the spread this season. Kain Colter and Trevor Siemian combined for 375 yards through the air and 4 touchdowns in the victory.

On the ground there was expectedly no Venric Mark who left last week’s game early while out in California. Treyvon Green opened the scoring just 51 seconds into the game and the Cats never looked back as they clobbered the Orange with their vaunted dual-quarterback system and complex running game which allowed 4 different people rush the ball in Mark’s absence.  Colter led the way with 87 yards and a score.

The leading pass-catcher on the team was Tony Jones who hauled 9 passes for 185 yards and a score. The Wildcats continue their month long homestand at Ryan Field next Saturday when they host Western Michigan at 8PM. The Wildcats are already a 31-point favorite in the game!
