Boylan alum Dean Lowry ready for final game at Northwestern

Posted:
ROCKFORD (WREX) -

Former Boylan Titan and current Northwestern defensive lineman Dean Lowry will appear in his final game as a Wildcat on New Year's Day against Tennessee in the Outback Bowl.

This will be Northwestern's first appearance in a bowl game since 2012 - a victory against Mississippi State in the Gator Bowl. No senior class has ever won two bowl games in program history, and Lowry is excited about the opportunity to leave his mark with his fellow seniors before he prepares for the 2016 NFL Draft.

"It's a big game for us to leave our legacy and to get that eleventh win and Outback Bowl win. It'll be a very special win for our program to get this program back on track to compete for championships," Lowry said. "It'd be huge. It would be the first time in our program for players to have two bowl victories. That's definitely on our mind, but that eleventh win would be a special win for this program, and to have this senior class be a part of something special and to leave our legacy as one of the best teams to ever play here."

Northwestern and Tennessee kick off Friday at 11 AM.
