Indiana, Northwestern Have Plenty of Similarities
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -- From quarterback questions to Big Ten losing streaks, Indiana and Northwestern look like identical twins.

Northwestern (2-5) hasn't won since Sept. 10. Indiana (1-7) hasn't won since Sept. 17. They are only conference teams at 0-4 in league play, too.

Northwestern's Pat Fitzgerald and Indiana's Kevin Wilson were assistants with the Wildcats in 2001. They are both in desperate need of a win.

While the Hoosiers seem poised to start quarterback Tre Roberson for the second straight week, Fitzgerald is just hoping quarterback Dan Persa can fight through his turf toe injury.
