N'western's 34-31 OT Homecoming win vs. Nebraska Sat. was its 10th W in its last 11 Big Ten games - its best stretch since winning 15 of 16 & back-to-back conference championships in 1995-96. The Wildcats' only other 10-1 Big Ten run was in 1930-31 (the only other time they won consecutive titles). The Huskers now have their first 6-game winless start ever (N'western has had 10).

The Cats are 3-1 in the Big Ten and still control their destiny in the West, while Nebraska drops to 0-6 for the first time in program history. The school-record losing streak has reached 10 games.

Real talk from Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald on coaches who do everything within the rules to keep tabs on their recruits: "I think there's a fine line between building a genuine relationship and becoming a creepy adult. I think if you're texting these kids, ‘Good morning, have a great lunch, goodnight sunshine,' you got problems, man."
