         === Green helps No. 17 Northwestern beat Western Michigan ===
 
 Evanston,  IL  (Sports Network) -  Treyvon Green rushed  for 158 yards and two
 touchdowns on 20 carries, while Kain Colter accounted for a pair of scores, as
 No.  17 Northwestern notched a 38-17 victory over Western Michigan on Saturday
 in a non-conference bout at Ryan Field.
 
 Colter  completed  6-of-7  passes  for  40  yards  with  a  touchdown  and  an
 interception  while  adding 106  yards  and  a score  on  15  carries for  the
 Wildcats (3-0), who recorded their second straight 21-point triumph.
 
 The  victory extended  Northwestern's  home winning  streak in  non-conference
 action to 15 in a row.
 
 Tyler  Van Tubbergen  threw for 202 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception
 on  16-of-41  passing, with freshman  wideout Corey Davis catching five passes
 for  112 yards and  a score for the Broncos (0-3), who were coming off a 27-23
 setback against FCS foe Nicholls State.
 
 "Well  I thought we responded very well on defense tonight early, I think that
 shows  what  type of  team this  is with as  many youngsters and inexperienced
 players  as  we have,"  Western Michigan  coach P.J. Fleck  said. "I love that
 because that's the how, that's what this foundation is going to continue to be
 built on."
 
 Northwestern's  offense  struggled to find  its rhythm  in the early going, as
 Colter  was picked  off on  the team's  third play  from scrimmage  before the
 Wildcats lost yards on their second touch and went three-and-out.
 
 Jeff  Budzien  missed a 42-yard  field goal  try on Northwestern's third touch
 before  Van  Tubbergen moved  the Broncos  to the  Northwestern 20, setting up
 Andrew Haldeman's 37-yard field goal to make it 3-0 late in the first.
 
 The  Wildcats'  offense finally broke through  early in the second when Colter
 capped  a  7-play,  57-yard trek  with  a  4-yard  TD  surge, but  on  Western
 Michigan's  next play  from scrimmage, Van Tubbergen hooked up with Davis on a
 75-yard score to put the Broncos on top, 10-7, just 11 seconds later.
 
 Colter  quickly countered, ripping off a 10-yard run before picking up 18 more
 down  to  the Western Michigan  11. Three  plays later, Colter found Christian
 Jones for a 6-yard touchdown to give Northwestern a 14-10 lead.
 
 Following  a  three-and-out from  Western  Michigan,  Colter and  Mike  Trumpy
 combined  on  an 8-play, 50-yard  march that Trumpy  finished with a 4-yard TD
 run to make it 21-10 with 2:15 left in the half.
 
 After  a quick punt from the Broncos, Trevor Siemian moved the Wildcats inside
 the  WMU 20, setting  up Budzien's 35-yard field goal in the waning seconds of
 the half to send Northwestern into the break with a 24-10 cushion.
 
 The  Wildcats  forced a Western  Michigan punt to  open the second half before
 Northwestern  put together  a lengthy  14-play, 87-yard  trek that  made it  a
 three-score game late in the third.
 
 Northwestern  converted a pair of third downs on the march, which Green capped
 with a 1-yard TD plunge to make it 31-10 with 4:38 left in the third.
 
 Trumpy  fumbled  the ball away on  the first play of Northwestern's next touch
 and  two plays  later, Van Tubbergen hit Josh Schaffer for a 25-yard touchdown
 to bring the Broncos within 31-17 with under a minute remaining in the third.
 
 Green   restored   Northwestern's  21-point   cushion  just  four  plays  into
 Northwestern's ensuing touch, as he surged up the middle before bouncing it to
 the  outside en  route to a 42-yard score  for a 38-17 lead less than a minute
 into the fourth.
 
 "I'm just doing my job. The opportunity presented itself, so I'm just stepping
 up to a role when a guy is down," Green said.
 
 Northwestern's  defense stood tall from there, forcing the Broncos to turn the
 ball  over on downs on two of their final three possessions to hang on for the
 victory.
 
 
                                   Game Notes
 
 Though both of these teams hail from the Midwest portion of the country, there
 has never been a matchup between them previously ... Northwestern racked up 31
 first  downs and  471 yards of total  offense, including 332 on the ground ...
 Jones  finished  with five catches  for 60 yards  for the Wildcats ... Western
 Michigan finished 5-for-18 on third-down efficiency.
