Northwestern is bowling for the fourth consecutive season, and the Wildcats are trying to end a bowl win drought that goes back well over half a century. To break the dry spell and get over the hump, they'll have to find some way to contain -- or at least slow down -- Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill and the Aggies offense. Offensively, they must step up their pass protection against an A&M defense that leads the country with 3.58 sacks per game.
