Dan Persa hopes to make Northwestern 3-0

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Northwestern quarterback Dan Persa, the nation's most efficient passer, will lead the Wildcats' no-huddle offense at Rice Saturday night in Houston. It will be the last time the two teams meet for a while, since the Big Ten expanded in June and new divisions were announced Sept. 1, changing the Wildcats' 2011 schedule and therefore bumping Rice out of the picture. 

After a shaky start at Vanderbilt on Sept. 4, the 'Cats ground game picked up against Illinois State last weekend with a 37-3 win at a rain-soaked Ryan Field. With the offensive line playing better and tailback Arby Fields gaining confidence, Northwestern could start the season 3-0.
