Chicago State @ Northwestern

What to Know

The Northwestern Wildcats are 5-0 against the Chicago State Cougars since December of 2015, and they'll have a chance to extend that success Monday. They will face off at 8 p.m. ET November 7th at Welsh-Ryan Arena to kick off their 2022 seasons. Northwestern struggled last year, ending up 15-16. Likewise, coming off of an uninspired 7-25 last-season record, Chicago State has set their aspirations higher this season.

The Wildcats have the odds in their favor, so they'll need to guard against complacency. These early season matchups can go either way as both teams get back into playing shape.
