A beginner’s guide to Northwestern football: 2019 edition

With Northwestern students trickling back to campus for the start of the 2019-20 school year and freshmen in the midst of Wildcat Welcome orientation week, Inside NU would like to extend our welcome to the entire student community.

We know that not everyone on this campus cares about Northwestern sports and especially football as much as we do, but for those of you who do, we have you covered. Some of you may follow the team religiously while others might only pop in for a few quarters throughout the season, but we’re writing this guide so everyone can brush up on their NU football knowledge heading into the season.
