Orange City, IA - The running combination of Theo Bartman and Brandon Smith carried #11 Northwestern past Midland, 39-20.
Theo Bartman rushed for 172 yards and one touchdown, while Brandon Smith plowed ahead for 168 yards and two touchdowns.
Theo Bartman had a school-record 97-yard run in the fourth quarter, breaking the old record of 95 yards set by current head coach Kyle Achterhoff (1988) and Dave Perrigo (2000).
This is also the third game this season where both Bartman and Smith go for over 100 yards in the same game.
Davis Bloemendaal missed the game due to injury -- freshman Braden Miltenberger made his first career start at QB.
