Congratulations to the Northwestern Wildcats, on their overcoming a double digit deficit to defeat the Nebraska Cornhuskers and deny them their first win of the season. The Cats claimed the NU Bowl 34-31 in OT. Nebraska coach Scott Frost came extremely close to achieving his first win as the leader of his alma mater, but that milestone will have to wait.

If they can’t knock off the Fighting Flecks of Minnesota next week, then perhaps it will happen October 27th versus Bethune-Cookman. The home team now improves to 2-6 in the last 8 games of this series, and Saturday marked the first home win over the Nebraska Cornhuskers in Northwestern program history.

Northwestern improved to 10-1 in their 11 conference games, in a contest they absolutely needed to have by any means necessary. With three losses already, and #5 Notre Dame, #15 Wisconsin and #26 Iowa still left on the schedule, losing here would have essentially kiboshed their bowl game hopes for this season.

Right now, the Northwestern Wildcats, Scott Frost and the Nebraska Cornhuskers are all top five trending terms nationally on Twitter, so let’s take a look at some of the better tweets from this one.

All joking aside, Frosty is going to get it all together soon, as the Nebraska Cornhuskers are not all that far off. Yes, they are 0-6, off to the worst start in school history, but this is not an 0-6 team. They are a hell of a lot better than that, and you’ll see this soon enough.
