Northwestern Football Schedules Gameday Nap Time Before Game With Nebraska (Photo)

Pat Fitzgerald now knows what it's going to take for his Northwestern Wildcats to knock off Nebraska in an important Big 10 game this Saturday. It's going to take a little shut-eye before the game.

Fitzgerald announced earlier this week that when the two teams meet Saturday in Lincoln, the Cats will be doing so with the benefit of a catnap. That's good news for Northwestern fans, given the game is at 2:30 p.m.

The head coach said that he asked the team's Leadership Counsel why they started slow for their last 2:30 start. The answer he got, according to the Chicago Tribune, had to do with a lack fo sleep apparently.

"Unbelievable," he said, according to the paper. "This is what I get paid to do. Seriously. Create nap time. It's pathetic."

It's no joke, either. Fitzgerald actually tweeted a picture of the team's traveling itinerary on Wednesday, and sure enough, "Mandatory Cat Nap" is listed for 9:30 a.m.

See it below.
