Outback Bowl preview - basketball edition
this year's bowl-related post doesn't have as much detail as last year, primarily because NU changed the online format of its media guide which makes things a little more difficult to navigate. there also isn't a lot of history with Northwestern basketball and the SEC, but here we go:
- Northwestern and Auburn have never faced each other in basketball.
- Overall NU is 8-14 against the SEC, but the most recent meeting was way back in December 1992. NU lost by 20 at Vanderbilt.
- NU has a victory over the University of Tampa; the Wildcats have never played the University of South Florida.
- Under Bill Carmody the team has played only once in the state of Florida, a 71-53 loss at Florida State in December 2003.
