citrus bowlORLANDO — Northwestern capped off a successful campaign with the program's fourth-straight bowl win and defensive coordinator Mike Hankwitz earning his 400thcareer win in a 35-19 victory over Auburn. Hankwitz's defense was masterful against Auburn, highlighted by senior linebacker Paddy Fisher leading all players with 12 total tackles, bringing his career output to 404 career tackles, the most of any FBS player. He is the sixth player in program history to reach at least 400 tackles, and the first since NU's current LB coach (and all-time FBS leader in total tackles) Tim McGarigle. Fisher also recorded double digit tackles alongside fellow senior linebacker Blake Gallagher for their seventh time in their careers. Northwestern allowed only one red zone touchdown by Auburn, they will end the season with only eight red zone touchdowns. The 'Cats are tied for the lowest allowed in the nation by teams that played at least eight games.
