NU crashes to reality in Minnesota lossNorthwestern falls to Minnesota, 24-17Good Cat, Bad Cat: MinnesotaMcEvilly granted sixth year of eligibilityHenry needs to be "the best safety he can be"
Join us for coverage this afternoon and keep this thread going.

Big game for Northwestern, as always. Hope the exciting day of Big Ten basketball (looking at you, Michigan-Wisconsin) continues with this one.

Things to note about the opponent:Iowa is desperate for win. They're talented this season, but the wins have yet to come. The Hawkeyes are 3-7 in Big Ten play, with the most recent close loss coming against Wisconsin in double overtime on Wednesday. Roy Devyn Marble is looking to get back on track for Iowa. He's scored only 10 points in his last three games combined.]]>

Swopshire and Hearn with some nice buckets. Olah with a layup inside — and not a dunk.

Only concern: Marble looks solid in the opening minutes. Transition dunk and three from the left wing.

9-7 Wildcats at the first media timeout.]]>

Preach.

Huge that Hearn is off to a good start on the road.

We talked with Dave Eanet before the game about how Hearn's success can key NU. Looks solid so far.]]>

Out-rebounding Iowa 10-4 so far.

These are good signs. Center position struggling a little bit right now for NU, though.]]>

Thanks for checking in GoNUCats... They are looking pretty solid. 

Strange officiating early on though.]]>

The emerging contrast: depth.

Iowa bringing in its subs almost immediately, and as Kevin Trahan pointed out, Fran rested all of his starters at once.

Meanwhile, NU still running with about seven guys. Should be interesting to see what kind of role fatigue plays in this one.]]>

Like what I see from the Wildcats. Just need to keep up the energy and get Demps or a surprise contributor on track.]]>

Second half starts on bad note. 

Olah heads to the locker room with injury. Marble blows by Swopshire. Turner struggling big time and picks up third. 34-28 Iowa. Hawkeyes with all the momentum.]]>
