Northwestern is coming off a 40-6 victory over North Miami. The game was called early because of lightning.
“I’m really pleased with the progression we made from Week 1 to Week 2,” Hendryx said. “We made a lot of changes after the first week. We thought we needed to get more skill guys involved. We now have a freshman quarterback [Trey Richmond]. It’s not because our senior quarterback [Logan Macaluso] was not doing well, it’s because we had a little bit of a problem at the running back spot so we put him there. He’s big and physical and that made a huge difference last week. I couldn’t be any prouder of Macaluso and how he’s taken the change.
“We had five different guys carry the football last week and that’s pretty much going to be our norm. We’re playing with different combinations at different places. Moving him allows us to do that.”
