The Syracuse-Northwestern matchup this weekend has more on the line than just Big East versus Big Ten. The top two journalism schools in the country will go head-to-head in the Carrier Dome, creating a little more trash-talking among ESPN employees. There are a lot of alums from either the S.I. Newhouse of Public Communications at Syracuse University or the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University.
