    northwestern survied a great fog and the driving snow, and escaped happy valley with a win by the narrowest of margines. the offence sputtered most of the game turning the ball over 6 times. the defence rose to the challenge stopping a pen state team who is much more suited for poor weather games. their vaunted running game had a hard time escaping the vicious lbs that northwestern put on the field. the white out uniforms proved to be a problem for northwester as thier players had difficultly locating each other on the field. qbs finding wrs, wrs seeing the qb and following the ball. two interceptions occured in the redzone one inside the 5, these were the difference in scoreing early. by the end of the game the offence could have given up, but they kept fighting eventualy pulling out the last second victory. kolter came up clutch in the closeing minutes orcastrating two magnificant drives. he had thrown 5 ints before nu's final two drives. the pic above is on of those ints. the win gave northwestern a winning record for the first time all year and droped a tallented pen state team to 2-4
