In a recent press release, Northwestern has officially announced its 2015-16 non-conference schedule. The Wildcats have faced several marquee teams in recent years including the Missouri Tigers, Stanford Cardinal, and the UCLA Bruins and are set to add more intriguing matchups in the future.
Though Northwestern appears to lack any major national contenders on its schedule, they do have some solid opponents both at home and on neutral courts and should be able to add at least some marquee games to its resume. The non-conference schedule will likely be highlighted by a road trip to Virginia Tech during the 2015 Big Ten/ACC Challenge.
Here is the full non-conference schedule.
