Much like Ohio State, Northwestern's offense boasts two talented quarterbacks in Colter and Siemian. Colter, who is a dual-threat quarterback and has started all four games for the Wildcats this season, has 264 yards on 27-of-35 passing with three touchdowns and two interceptions while adding 237 yards rushing and three more scores.

Siemian is 47-of-70 passing for 671 yards, four touchdowns, and two interceptions.

“The only reason the two-quarterback system works is because of our young men. The credit goes to (Colter and Siemian),” Fitzgerald said. “They both came in together, they were freshmen together, they are very good friends, they’ve got the utmost respect for each other, and they want what is best for the team. I’m very thankful for their unselfishness and we all are thankful for the leadership that both guys bring.

“Football is the ultimate team game. You have to suppress your wants for the greater good of the cause.”
