Freshman Lowry excels for Wildcats

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
True freshman Ifeadi Odenigbo, the four-star recruit from Centerville, Ohio, made his college debut but it was another true freshman defense end who made the bigger impact in a 23-13 win over Vanderbilt at Ryan Field on Saturday night.

Dean Lowry tipped a pass, pressured Vanderbilt quarterback Jordan Rodgers on several occasions and also recovered the fumble that all-but ended Vanderbilt's potential game-winning drive in the final two minutes. 

"It was awesome to see Dean Lowry out there as a true freshman making some plays and getting in Rodgers' face," senior defensive end Quentin Williams said.

Defensive tackle Tyler Scott had six tackles, including two for losses, a sack and a forced fumble for Northwestern's resurgent defense.

Odenigbo played briefly in place of defensive end Deonte Gibson, who injured his elbow against Syracuse, but did not record a tackle.
