  Jesse Brown scored the go-ahead touchdown on a 2-yard run in the third quarter, and Northwestern erased an early 17-point deficit to beat Iowa 21-20 on Saturday. The Wildcats outscored the Hawkeyes 21-3 after the first quarter, eating up clock and keeping Iowa's offense out of rhythm. Ramsey helped create that momentum, throwing for 130 yards on 11-of-18 passing and running for 26. Isaiah Bowser had 25 carries for 85 yards for the Wildcats (2-0). Spencer Petras threw all three of his interceptions in the second half, the last one on a tipped ball that linebacker Blake Gallagher picked off, allowing Northwestern to go into victory formation. Iowa's 17-0 first-quarter lead came after Northwestern gifted the Hawkeyes (0-2) with two turnovers - a muffed punt inside the 5-yard line and a fumble near midfield. Kyric McGowan scored on a 3-yard run and Brown scored from the 1 to pull the Wildcats within 20-14. Iowa punted three times, had three passes intercepted and turned the ball over on downs on seven second-half possessions that netted a total of 104 yards. - AP College Football

  Senior linebackers Blake Gallagher, Paddy Fisher and Chris Bergin have spent their entire NU careers playing together. They're the stalwarts of the defense, and last year combined for 127 solo tackles and 17 tackles for loss. "That bond that we've built over these past couple of years is huge, especially in a weird year like this," Gallagher said. "We're kind of all on the same page. We've been out there, we've had the experience with each other, we kind of know what each other's gonna do. We can play off of each other."

The trio leads a defense that struggled to make game changing plays. Last year, the Cats compiled just seven interceptions, down from 12 the year prior. After forcing 15 fumbles in 2018, NU recorded just 10 last season. Gallagher said the defense is focusing on recovering those disruptive tendencies. They've found new drills to sharpen their skills and are preaching a hungrier mentality. "Our goal is to be the best defense in the Big Ten," Gallagher said. "We set out goals every year for our linebackers to be the most physical linebacking corps in the Big Ten and that hasn't changed in our time here. That's what we're gonna go out and try to do this year again. Just pride ourselves on stopping the run." - The Daily Northwestern
