Northwestern’s game kicked off 11 a.m. Saturday, and the Wildcats played like they forgot their morning cup of coffee.

NU (4-3, 0-3) lost 20-17 at Ryan Field, falling to Minnesota (5-2, 1-2) in a game NU was favored to win by double digits.

“We’ve just got to play better, is what it comes down to,” junior linebacker Collin Ellis said flatly. “We didn’t play well today, and that’s pretty much how it is.”
