Northwestern and Muhammad Ali have more in common than you think.
Both have the ability to come at you with a flurry of punches (on offense or defense) and each one of those punches has the ability to deliver a knockout shot.
If I had to guess, that's probably one of the reasons why the guys at Northwestern decided to combine footage of Ali during his prime with their highlights as motivation for the Buckeyes trip to Evanston on Saturday, in what turned out to be one the best games of the weekends to watch from a scheme (and coaching) standpoint.
Here's what the 'Cats watched before the big game. This week they travel up to Madison to take on the Badgers.
