Two defensive TDs leads Northwestern over Maine

Posted: Updated:

EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) - Linebacker Damien Proby and defensive end Dean Lowry each had an interception return for a touchdown to lead No. 18 Northwestern to a 35-21 win over Maine on Saturday.

Northwestern improved to 4-0 as it wrapped up its non-conference slate, but this was not the consistent, steady performance coach Pat Fitzgerald was looking for heading into the Big Ten season. If not for the interception returns for scores, Maine (3-1) very well could have been shooting for an upset down the stretch.

Running back Mike Trumpy and quarterback Kain Colter each had rushing touchdowns for Northwestern.

Marcus Wasilewski was 25 for 40 for 237 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions for Maine, which had a 379 to 373 edge over the Wildcats in total yards. Northwestern had posted better than 500 yards of offense in each of its first two games against California and Syracuse.
