Northwestern Vs. Iowa Preview: Wildcats Look To Extend Winning Streak

Northwestern goes for three wins in a row.

The Northwestern Wildcats have won two games in a row to improve to 4-6 in Big Ten play and they'll get a chance to make it three in a row when they host Iowa on Thursday night. It's a winnable road game for the Wildcats, and one they'll need as the schedule gets tougher.

Neither team has been very good at the defensive end in Big Ten games, which could make for an efficient night for both offenses. Northwestern should have plenty of scoring opportunities since they rarely turn the ball over and Iowa's defense hasn't been forcing many mistakes of late.
