You can call them the Babe Ruths of the Big Ten. Northwestern’s defensive backs are calling their shots.
Last week it was safety Jared McGee, who posted this Instagram the day before the Wildcats faced Michigan State.
The following day, McGee came up with a pick in Northwestern’s 54-40 win over the Spartans.
This Friday, it was safety Kyle Queiro who Tweeted “Thanks for the INT” the night before the Wildcats’ game with Indiana.
Thanks for the INT.

Less than 24 hours later, he not only picked off a pass in the fourth quarter, he made one of the most spectacular defensive plays of the season for the Wildcats.

It was Northwestern’s second impressive, one-handed pick of the afternoon against the Hoosiers. Montre Hartage made a great pick in the second quarter of the Wildcats 24-14 win.
