What to watch when Northwestern takes on Minnesota

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

When Northwestern plays Minnesota today in the Big Ten opener, watch for the Wildcats' defensive line. Even though they lost a marquee player like Corey Wootton, the Wildcats have the deepest d-line in years. NU is playing a lot of different players inside like former Hinsdale Central product Jack DiNardo, who has shined since the opening game of the season at Vanderbilt and had his hands on two blocked kicks last week against Central Michigan. Also watch Niko Mafuli, Vince Browne, Kevin Watt, Tyler Scott, Quentin Williams and Brian Arnfelt. Those guys are making veteran lineman Corbin Bryant's job a lot easier.

"It helps to know that we have eight guys that can play well," Bryant said. "I'm not worried about anyone not doing as well as they can."
