Last year the Huskies won 45-20.
Northern Illinois Huskes
The Northern Illinois Huskies have had a pretty good season so far this year coming into this game with a 4-2 record and both losses in games they were the underdogs in.
They have to be a bit concerned coming into this game though. In their last game they were 7.5 point favorites over the Buffalo Bulls.
The offense really struggled though, and they could only muster up 14 points. The defense did play well giving up only 13 points, but there has been too many games where the offense has really struggled, and the team has wasted good defensive performances.
The strength of this Huskies team is the defensive side of the ball. They come into this game only giving up 16.7 points and 281.2 yards per game.
They are facing a Bowling Green team that has trouble scoring at times. They need to play well on the defensive side early and not let the Falcons get anything going.
If the offense does end up struggling in this game they will at least have their defense to fall back on.
Bowling Green Falcons
On the other side of this match up is the Bowling Green Falcons who have had a terrible start to their season, and come into this game as big underdogs.
They only have one win so far this season, and that was a big upset. Two games ago they were 17 point underdogs against the Miami Redhawks, but the offense got rolling early and that led to a 37-29 victory.
Most of the season though the Falcons offense has been terrible. They come into this game averaging 21 points per game, and they will probably need to score more then that to win this game.
One of the big problems the offense has had has been turning the ball over. They can’t afford any turnovers in this game if they want to be victorious in this game.
To win this game the Falcons probably going to have to build a lead and then try to find a way at the end of the game to hold off the Huskies.
