5 stars from Northwestern's win over Wisconsin

There are several players who stood out in a Big Ten West tilt that went the Wildcats' way.

Northwestern beat the Wisconsin Badgers 31-17, on Saturday, and some players went a long way towards making that happen. I'll tell you about five that, the record shows, fit the description.

1

Isaiah Bowser (Northwestern)

The Wildcats' rushing offense has been mostly bad in 2018. On Saturday Bowser stepped up with 117 yards and a touchdown on 34 carries.

2

Montre Hartage (Northwestern

The Wildcats defense came up big on Saturday. Hartage had five tackles, four passes defensed, and one fumble recovery.

3

Clayton Thorson (Northwestern)

Thorson struggled at times, throwing three interceptions, but he also had 167 yards and a touchdown through the air. It was his ability to find the end zone on the ground that gets him on this list. He had 29 yards and two TDs against Wisconsin.

4

Ryan Connelly (Wisconsin)

The Badgers' linebacker did everything he could to stop the Wildcats. He ended up with 14 tackles and one pass defensed.

5

Evan Bondoc (Wisconsin)

Yet another Badgers' defender that did his best to upend Northwestern. He had eight tackles, a quarterback hurry and an interception.
