Indiana-Northwestern Football preview

Now, Northwestern can see how it stacks up against the rest of the Big Ten. The Wildcats open conference play against Indiana on Saturday with a perfect record through four games that includes three wins over BCS opponents.

In a conference that's taken its share of hits so far, Northwestern is standing tall with the Hoosiers (2-1) up next.

The Wildcats are trying to go to 5-0 for the third time in five years after narrow wins over Syracuse, Vanderbilt and Boston College along with a breather against South Dakota last week, and they own three of the Big Ten's six wins over BCS conference opponents and Notre Dame.
