Northwestern senior QB Clayton Thorson completed 33-of-53 passes for 383 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in Saturday's 39-34 loss to Akron.
Looking at the outward statistical line, you might think that Thorson had a dominant evening. And he did, in places. However, the senior signal-caller also made two enormous gaffes in the fourth quarter, fumbling the ball in the end zone -- subsequently recovered by Akron for a touchdown -- and throwing a backbreaking pick-six which essentially ended the game. Those two plays came on back-to-back drives, at that. Yikes. It was certainly nice to see Thorson air it out, at least, after he had kept on something of a pitch count in the first two games of the campaign. He and his Wildcat brothers will try to rebound from this rough loss when they take on Michigan after their upcoming bye week. Sep 16 - 12:07 AM
