Stadium: Ryan Field       Surface: Grass        City: Evanston        State: Illinois With the 2018 college football season starting, there are many interesting teams worth following. One of the most interesting teams to follow will be the Northwestern Wildcats, which are coming off one of the most successful seasons in recent memory. While the Wildcats had a very good season in 2017, the 2018 season is shaping up to be very competitive. There are a variety of different roster battles taking place. One of the biggest positional battles will be at the quarterback position. Clayton Thorson is widely expected to be the starter heading into the year, but he has a lot of competition on the roster. TJ Green, who is a junior, is considered very talented and could take some snaps as well.

The Wildcats will likely once again have an offense that is defined by a strong running game. The starting running back will be Jeremy Larkin who was very solid last year as a freshman and has the ability to be a big-play running back. At the same time, they have a number of other supporting running backs that are bound to get some playing time.

The team’s defense will also be a big factor in the success for the Wildcats. For them to do well, and once again get through a tougher schedule, senior linebacker Nate Hall will be the focal point. While Hall was a good player last year, some expect that he will be a starter and will have the chance to make an all-conference team.
