Northwestern wins opener vs Nevada

The Wildcats won the season opener in Evanston vs the Temple Owls.  Cats QB Clayton Thorson tossed two TDs and rushed for two.  28 of 38 passes were completed and ended up with 352 yards.

Bennett Skowmronek had 8 receptions and 123 receiving yards.  Justin Jackson had 109 rushing yards.

This game had a few leads changed more than once but overall the Wildcats won this one thanks to a big field goal later in the second half and a TD pass by Thorson.

Cats visit Duke on Saturday at 11am CT.  I’ll have the preview for that game on Wednesday
