EVANSTON, IL – SEPTEMBER 29: A general view of Ryan Field as the Northwestern Wildcats take on the Indiana Hoosiers on September 29, 2012 in Evanston, Illinois. Northwestern defeated Indiana 44-29. (Photo by Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images)On Saturday afternoon, No. 20 Wisconsin walked into Evanston, Illinois as a four-point favorite. Four hours later, the team walked out with its third loss of the season after Northwestern dominated the Badgers.The Wildcats now own a significant hold in the Big Ten West – which will get even stronger if Penn State takes care of Iowa later this afternoon. Northwestern owned both sides of the ball en route to a 31-17 win.After the game was over, the Northwestern faithful did what any program who just took down a top-25 program would do – they rushed the field.Unlike the team’s win over Wisconsin, the field rush was less than impressive.Take a look.Lol Northwestern is rushing the field. pic.twitter.com/DKfj0T4pIk— Evan Flood (@Evan_Flood) October 27, 2018Sure, winning a game against a rival while said rival is ranked in the AP and Coaches’ Polls is great, but if you’re going to rush the field, at least cover a significant portion of it.Next up for Northwestern is a home game against Notre Dame. We’d expect to see a better field rush if the Wildcats can take down the Fighting Irish.

Foster may be one step closer to his dreams of Broadway. The Grammy-winning producer says that after years of trying to launch a stage musical, he’s confident one of them is finally taking shape. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Chris Young The story is based on a classic revenge tale, though Foster declined to name the source material in hopes of keeping the surprise under wraps.Getting to this point is a victory of sorts for the hitmaker behind Earth, Wind & Fire’s “After the Love Has Gone,” and frequent collaborator with Josh Groban and Michael Buble.He spent years working on a Betty Boop musical that’s stalled numerous times, while another project with Jewel, called “Lucky Us,” has also failed to take shape.Foster says the new musical based on his songs came along more recently, and developed faster than he expected, driven by Almond’s passion to get it off the ground.“We’re going to have our two-week workshop very soon — maybe even next month,” the 69-year-old producer told The Canadian Press.“So it’s moved quite far down the line because he’s so excited about it, and he’s propelling me.”Foster is at the Toronto International Film Festival to premiere “David Foster: Off the Record,” a new documentary on his decades-spanning career.
