No. 1 Northwestern Hosts No. 10 Saint Xavier In NAIA Quarterfinals On Saturday

Top ranked Northwestern hosts 10th ranked Saint Xavier of Illinois on Saturday in the quarterfinals of the NAIA playoffs.

Northwestern coach Matt McCarty.

In an upset of fifth ranked Marian last week, Saint Xavier had 15 tackles for a loss and 10 sacks. McCarty says the Raiders will need to take advantage of man coverage.

Saint Xavier leans on its passing game but McCarty says the defensive game plan begins with stopping the run.

McCarty says advancing in the playoffs requires playing at a high level.
