Northwestern Wildcats Football Team Info

Competing in the Big 10 isn't exactly easy, but that is also the point. A win in the Big 10 is, well, a pretty big deal, and that's because to bring home a conference win means that you have to beat a nationally known powerhouse. Outside of the conference play, however, the Wildcats also have a great schedule filled with intriguing other matchups that will have fans heading to the stands in droves from one year to the next. This is a team that has some explosive players on both sides of the ball, which means that they can win in a variety of different ways this season as they take aim at the top teams in the Big 10 East this season.


College Football Experience

Football is one of the best sports to see live and college football across the country has turned into a way of life, rather than just another sporting event. Game day is full of rituals, from dressing up in team colors and painting your face, to writing signs of the television cameras, to putting an incredible spread of food together to enjoy with friends and family outside the stadium before the game. In college football, a Saturday is full of sacred traditions that have been passed down through generations of students, ripe with superstitions and honor. Seeing a game at Ryan Field is a special event, where fans, students and alumni come together to cheer on the Wildcats as they hit the field looking to do battle with some of the top programs in all of college football. With a great crowd at your side, some electrifying playmakers down below on the field and an amazing atmosphere loaded with passion and energy, this is a sport that springs to a completely different level.


Northwestern Wildcats Football History

This great academic institution has been a part of the Big 10 Conference since it began in 1896, and has won eight Big 10 titles over the years. The Wildcats have enjoyed much recent success, appearing in a bowl game every year since 2008. There are many notable Wildcat alumni who have gone on to great success in the National Football League, including Pro Bowl wide receiver Steve Tasker, NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Otto Graham, and their current head coach, Pat Fitzgerald. Over the years, the Wildcats have gotten a reputation for playing in close games during the 1996 season, earning themselves the nickname "Cardiac Cats". As the Wildcats continue to make waves in the elite Big 10, it's always a good time to snag your favorite purple and white gear to help show your Northwestern love come game day.


Northwestern Wildcats Football Trivia

Do you know what round Steve Tasker was drafted in?

Though Northwestern fans got to see that Tasker was a special football player, the NFL was slow to come around, and Tasker slipped all the way into the ninth round, which doesn't even exist anymore in the draft. But Tasker would prove the skepticism completely wrong, establishing himself as a premier special teams player for the Buffalo Bills and going to seven different Pro Bowls.


Northwestern Wildcats Football Fans

The fans of the Northwestern Wildcats love to see their team take on their conference foes, and for good reason. For decades, the Big 10 has been one of the top college football conferences in the country and only became more feared when they added some new teams in 2011. Beginning in 2014, the University of Maryland and Rutgers University were also added to the Big 10, expanding the already great conference even further and elevating the overall competition even further. With all of that competition also comes big-time matchups that always have fans buzzing leading up to the opening kick-off, as this is a fan base that isn't shy about showing that they bleed purple and white when it's football season. Come out to Ryan Field this season for a big home game and it won't take long for you to get sucked right up into the experience.
