At the request of Eric Mukherjee, I’m here to see whether Northwestern’s slipper still fits. If they beat Yale, they’ll be playing on the big stage. In the other key game, Michigan plays Stanford to try to finish the playoff rounds still unbeaten.
Dylan says “We didn’t even have a hype video!”

Dylan gets lit for 10. Physics bonus. 20. Northwestern up by 80.
Adam gets social science. 10 on the art bonus. 200-100 Northwestern.
Chem tossup to Adam Silverman! Northwestern is rolling. Can Yale break their momentum? If Northwestern didn’t get only 10s on three bonuses…
Adam S. negs history. Yale picks it up.

Supposedly, Michigan lost! That’d give Northwestern a 1-game final against Michigan!
