NIU comes in 1-1 also.

Opened the season with a win over 1AA Illinois State 24-10 at home

Yesterday they lost to Utah 35-17 in SLC after being tied 14-14 at half

So this will be back to back road games vs P-5 schools

Thus they are averaging 20.5 points per game

If you would have told me this would be the spread for the NIU game two weeks ago, I'm not sure I would have believed it.

Sadly, the spread seems about right for a home game against a decent MAC team. Hopefully we can get by NIU's first-year coaching staff.

NIU over the past decade has been more than decent. They were 8-5 last year. Not a team to overlook. With at being said they are struggling a bit on offense this year. Not to mention back to back road games after a very physical affair with Utah yesterday.

At this point I wouldn’t be surprised if we blow them out, lose by 3 or win a close one. The only scenario I can’t see is them winning by a lot. Hopefully they come out with fire and grit to play 4 quarters after this last game.
