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.last_img read more

Day of sign up prices will be $5 more expensive than online sign ups.The event is being held on July 21. On the day of registration, participants in races other than the 10 km, should plan on arriving around 8 a.m.The 10km swim starts at 7:30 a.m. while all other distances start at 9 a.m.There will be a charity barbecue after the races that everyone is invited to.astaylor@postmedia.com read more
