The defense was dominant and shut out Michigan St, who really didn't ever get all that close to scoring. They did get shutout themselves in the 2nd half, and had their first failures in the red zone all year with an INT, two turnovers on downs, and kneel downs. So, got that stuff to clean up. But 4-0 with the biggest game in program history on deck.
On Reddit they were discussing how if there was to be a “random” COVID outbreak to prevent this game from being played and both teams won out, IU would hold the tiebreaker due to the record of out of division opponents and go to Indy.
If Northwestern beats Purdue today, they could have a random COVID outbreak to cancel their game with Wisconsin, making Wisconsin ineligible for the Big Ten title game, then would finish their season with games against Minnesota, MSU and Illinois.
