Battle of defenses: No. 13 Northwestern vs No. 18 Michigan
Oct 10, 2015 1:00 AM - Northwestern and Michigan have made steady climbs up The Associated Press poll due to their defenses. The 13th-ranked Wildcats have shut out two teams and are giving up a nation-low seven points a game. That has helped Northwestern equal its total number of victories in each of the previous two years. If the Wildcats win Saturday at the Big House, they will be 6-0 for the first time since 1962 when Ara Parseghian was their coach.
