CFB: (4) Ohio St. at (16) N'western

Is it possible? Could Northwestern be a real Big Ten contender? Let's not get ahead of ourselves; first the No. 16 Wildcats must handle visiting, undefeated and fourth-ranked Ohio State. It's one of NU's biggest regular-season games ever, and carries with it a rather ominous number: The Buckeyes have won 28 of the past 29 meetings. Then again, Ohio State didn't exactly thrash Wisconsin last week in Columbus. Might this be the time for coach Pat Fitzgerald & Co.?
