EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) - So far everything is looking good for No. 18 Northwestern.
A team that came in with high expectations is right where it hoped to be heading into Saturday's game against Maine.
The Wildcats (3-0) are unbeaten with wins over Pac-12 and ACC teams, and they figure to stay that way before the competition gets ramped up a few notches.
They have a week off after hosting the Black Bears (3-0) before Ohio State comes to town in a Big Ten opener that will show just how they stack up against the best in the conference.
For now, Northwestern is off to a strong start. The Wildcats opened with a 44-30 win at California and pounded Syracuse at home 48-27 before beating Western Michigan 38-17 last week.
