Neato. I get to cheer on the Wildcats as they take on UCLA in the Sun Bowl. It’s at the end of Dec.
SF Gate had this to say about the match-up:
“Most intriguing game, Watchability Category: UCLA vs. Northwestern in the Sun Bowl. Two explosive offensive teams with defenses that stink. UCLA is seventh nationally in scoring and Northwestern is eighth in total offense. The Bruins are 111th of 117 Division I-A teams in total defense, and the Wildcats are dead last. It’s hard to believe two teams with defenses that rank behind Idaho and Rice could be in such a prestigious bowl.”
Here’s a shot of Northwestern and Lake Michigan, from my dorm room.
