Huge game for both teams tonight as the winner is on the fast track to a MAC West title. Northern Illinois had some kinks that it needed to work out early in the season, but they’ve now hit their stride. NIU has consecutive wins over Miami, Eastern Michigan, and a strong Ball State team. They’re getting it done with the ground game, leading the MAC in rushing. Last week the Huskies rushed for 148 yards against Ball State.
