Fitz satisfied with special teams, at least

Pat Fitzgerald credited everyone from assistant coach Dennis Springer to every member of the return team for Venric Mark's 75-yard punt return for a touchdown.

"You could tell they did a lot of film study," Mark said. "They knew we were going to go right and I knew they knew we were going to go right. So, I went left."

Steve Flaherty averaged 57 yards in five kickoffs and Brandon Williams averaged 38.4 yards on eight punts. Northwestern also turned a muffled punt recovered by Nick VanHoose into a touchdown in the first half.

"The one thing I thought we took a step forward today was our kicking game," Fitzgerald said. "I thought our kicking game was good today. It gave us a chance to win a football game on the road. Now we have to get the other two phases going. That's the disappointing thing. We didn't play very good team football today."
