Last season, Northwestern won in Bloomington for the first time since 1968.  The current winning streak, a whopping three, is NU's longest streak since the 1930s.  Much like last season, Northwestern flirted with an NCAA Tournament bid before falling apart.  The Wildcats have lost four of their last six, including a game at Iowa and two games against Penn State.  Northwestern hasn't won on the road since winning at Michigan on January 10.  This is a game, much like the annual football game between the schools, that each team (or at least each fan base) firmly believes it should win.  Northwestern thrashed the Hoosiers on Super Bowl Sunday in the wake of IU's tough week of close losses to Illinois and Purdue. 

I don't have much to say about this matchup.  It's Senior Day, the last home game for Tijan Jobe and Devan Dumes.  It's the last regular season game, although IU seems likely to play Northwestern again in the 7/10 game in the Big Ten Tournament.  Here are the stats:
