Undefeated Michigan Host Resurgent Northwestern Saturday (10/23/2021)

Northwestern Wildcats vs. Michigan Wolverines Betting Information

Last year Northwestern won the Big Ten West Division.  Thus, they made the Big Ten Championship Game.  There, the Wildcats put up something of a College football betting fight. However, the outcome was never in doubt.  Ohio State won going away.  Still, it was a tremendous accomplishment for the Wildcats.  However, it meant that a lean year was to come in 2021.  Sustaining success has proven to be a steep climb for head coach Pat Fitzgerald and the Wildcats.  This week won’t get any easier with a trip to Michigan.  Coach Jim Harbaugh’s team is nasty and fundamentally sound.
