Jackson, No. 22 Northwestern run over Illinois

(TSX / STATS) -- CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- The last time Northwestern won seven consecutive games, coach Pat Fitzgerald was the star linebacker in 1996.

No wonder Fitzgerald is so bullish on this group of Wildcats.

"This team has dominated the last couple of weeks," he said after Saturday's 42-7 Big Ten Conference rout of Illinois. "It's as hot as any team in the country, and it's improved as much as any team in the country."
