The Northwestern Wildcats play in the tough Big Ten Conference against a top schedule in college football. The biggest games for the Wildcats are against Iowa, Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State and Wisconsin. A good year in Evanston has the Cats competing for a spot in the Big Ten Football Championship with the chance to play in the Rose Bowl.
Northwestern was the Big Ten representative in the inaugural TicketCity Bowl in Dallas, Texas. The Wildcats played an amazing game, but lost a shootout 38-45 to the Texas Tech Red Raiders. The game was played January 1, 2011, on a cold morning at the Cotton Bowl.
