Hoosiers face another test in Wildcats

The days of Northwestern being the one Big Ten football team Indiana could usually count on beating are long gone.

The Hoosiers once dominated the series, winning 16 of 18 games from the mid-1970s to early 1990s. Since then, the advantage clearly has swung to the Wildcats, who have beaten Indiana in four straight games and in eight of the past 10.

Last week's 48-26 thrashing of Purdue last Saturday gave Northwestern (6-1, 2-1) its best season start in 12 years. The Wildcats will try to extend their control over the reeling Hoosiers (2-5, 0-4) tomorrow when the two teams meet on homecoming day at Bloomington's Memorial Stadium. Northwestern totaled 466 yards of offense against Purdue, and the defense forced five turnovers.
