Northwestern Hopes to Avoid BCS Letdown

Young Wildcats re-focus on finishing the season strong

Northwestern finds themselves this week somewhere where very few college football people expected them to be:  Ranked in the first BCS Poll of the season.

The Wildcats check in at #22 after exploding for a season-best 48-point effort against Purdue this past weekend.  Now the young Wildcats will take that national recognition on the road for back-to-back away contests against Indiana and Minnesota.

NBC Chicago's Paula Faris found out that the coaching staff is focusing the players on the games ahead, rather than their lofty national rankings.
