Northwestern Wildcats Football Bowl History

The Northwestern Wildcats do not share the rich tradition of college football success that others in the Big Ten have, but in recent years the Wildcats have been a regular bowl participant. From 2008-2012 Northwestern played in five straight bowl games which included a 2012 Gator Bowl victory over Mississippi State - the program's first bowl win in 64 years.
