Northwestern is on its maiden voyage to Lincoln in a Big Ten conference game, and it's been so far, so good for the Wildcats early on. NU leads NU ... er, Northwestern leads Nebraska 7-3 as we approach halftime, a Jacob Schmidt two-yard touchdown run being the difference in the game so far.
Most of the Wildcats' yardage has come from the arm of Dan Persa, who's 9-of-14 for 79 yards. The ground game has not been a insignificant factor, but it's spread over several players. Persa is tied with Treyvon Green the team lead in rushing, with 19 yards.
