Posted by Jonathan Hodges on September-20-2009 Add Comments

Northwestern (2-1, 0-0) went on the road for the first time in 2009 and fell to Syracuse (1-2) in a shootout and a heartbreaker for the 'Cats by a final score of 34-37

The Wildcats got off to a slow start, falling behind 17-0 in the first quarter, partially thanks to a lost fumble on NU's first play from scrimmage in the game, which Syracuse promptly turned into a touchdown (after the Orange scored a field goal on their opening drive).

The 'Cats came roaring back in the second quarter, though, going on three sustained touchdown drives that temporarily gave NU a 21-17 lead before the Orange tacked on another TD before the half.
