Northwestern has an offense again. It might not be anything you’d think of as special, but it’s functional.
It actually was special against a Maryland team that didn’t show up in the 43-3 opener. It was ugly, there was a ton of Wildcat offense, and the total combined points were 46.
Last week, the offense didn’t get going until late against Iowa in a 21-20 win. The D was excellent, the offense did what it had to do, and Northwestern had a 2-0 start.
While all that was happening in Iowa City, Nebraska was taking the week off and resting up.
The Husker offense didn’t look all that bad in the opener against Ohio State, but it only scored 17.
In this, both offenses can work just fine and still not come close to playing in the 30s.
