Northern Illinois will look to keep the momentum building after winning their first game of the season last week against the Ball State Cardinals.
They have had some major difficulties so far this season but will playing for win number two against the Broncos this week in Kalamazoo Michigan.
The Western Michigan Broncos have been turning some heads this season and getting some much deserved attention.
They were able to get a win last weekend against the Central Michigan Chippewas 49-10 in order to remain unbeaten this season.
Western Michigan Broncos
The Broncos defense were able to keep quarterback Cooper Rush of Central Michigan on the move last weekend, sacking him eight times.
Western Michigan also created two turnovers, including a pick six that was returned 85 yards to the house.
The defense will look to keep their stingy reputation growing when they play host to the Huskies on Saturday. Heading into week six, the Broncos have only been allowing opposing offenses an average of 319.2 yards a game.
Senior quarterback Zach Terrell will lead the charge for the Broncos offense.
He has completed 83 of 119 attempts this season for a total of 1063 yards and twelve touchdowns. Western Michigan has averaged 459.6 total yards a game this season with 247 of them coming by means of the running game.
Jamauri Bogan is the Broncos leading rusher with a total of 530 yards and 5 touchdowns off of 90 carries.
Losing is not something the Huskies are accustomed to so having a record of 0-4 was a hard pill to swallow.
They were finally able to come up with a 31-24 win in Muncie last week behind a 653 total yard performance.
The Huskies were able to hang and win despite the fact that they turned the ball over three different times.
Northern Illinois quarterback Anthony Maddie was able to move the ball at will against the cardinals, throwing for 298 yards on 26-41 attempts and racking up 160 yards with his legs on 14 carries.
Joel Bouagnon was also able to pass the century mark, running for a total of 153 rushing yards on 21 carries.
The Northern Illinois defense will need to tighten up a little if they want to give their offense an opportunity to keep up.
The Huskies have allowed opposing offenses to average a total of 484.6 yards a game in route to 36 points a contest.

The Huskies have been giving up over 36 points per game this season and the Broncos have an offense that could run that number up any higher.
The Broncos have put up an average of almost 45 points per game and there isn’t much Northern Illinois will be able to do on defense in order to hold Western Michigan back.

Both of the games the Broncos have won in Kalamazoo this season have been blown wide open and I think that will continue this weekend.
Their defense should also be able to limit what the Huskies are able to do with the ball and win this game big, going over the total of 63.5.
