Defying nearly all expectations, the Wildcats experienced a rebirth in 1995 and have been surprising the college football world since. Northwestern Wildcat Football describes in detail the teams first games in the 19th century, the Wildcats title runs in the 1930s, the career of NU legend Otto Graham, the 1949 Rose Bowlchampionship, the era of Ara Parseghian, the woes of the 70s and 80s, and Northwesterns return to football prominence in the past decade. From their beginning as one of the earliest college teams in the Midwest to the recent series of Big Ten championships, the Northwestern Wildcats have clawed their way to claim 8 conference titles, 36 All-Americans, and victory in some of the most thrilling college football games ever played.
