EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) - No. 19 Northwestern hosts Syracuse on Saturday, and coach Pat Fitzgerald sees plenty of room for improvement heading into this game.
He said the Wildcats are ``far from a Picasso organization right now.''
They have soaring expectations after going 10-3 last season and dropping a big weight from their shoulders by capturing the program's first bowl victory since the 1948 team beat California in the Rose Bowl.
Coincidentally, the Wildcats won at Cal in the opener last week, using some fortunate bounces and taking control late in a 44-30 victory after getting banged up along the way.
