Bulls Edge Central in Playoffs

Northwestern edges Central in playoff thriller
It's time to throw out the words ''youth'' and ''underdog'' when describing this year's Northwestern football team.
The Bulls are still the Bulls.
Sophomore quarterback Teddy Bridgewater's 43-yard touchdown pass to senior Tyrell Lewis with 15 seconds to play secured a thrilling 38-32 victory against Central in a Region 4-6A semifinal in front of an estimated crowd of 15,000 at FIU Stadium.
Central quarterback Jefferey Godfrey's desperation pass as time expired was intercepted by Northwestern junior Kelly Alexander as the defending mythical national champion Bulls (11-1) avenged a loss to the Rockets earlier this season. Northwestern eliminated Central from the playoffs for the second time in three seasons.
Northwestern has won 41 of its past 42 games and advances to play Killian (10-2) on Friday in the Region 4-6A final at 7:30 p.m. at FIU Stadium.
