Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald says that his Wildcats will be facing "the hottest team in the country" when they play Illinois on Saturday in Champaign, but he's looking forward to the matchup with NU's in-state rivals.
Fitzgerald talked with host Chris Childers of Rivals Radio on Tuesday, and he covered a variety of topics in the 7:46 interview, from the Cats' upcoming season finale to Northwestern's recruiting philosophy and facilities.
Fitzgerald also offered his thoughts on Northwestern players such as C.J. Bacher, David Ngene, Corey Wootton and Tyrell Sutton, who Fitzgerald says is "playing his best football of the season right now."
