The Huskies are in the race in the MAC West. They are one of two undefeated teams in the division though just barely. They nearly lost at Buffalo last week. The Bulls are tougher than you think though.
The Falcons proved that there win at Miami a couple of weeks ago was a fluke. They were back to their losing and not covering ways against Ohio last week. They will probably not win again this season.
Northern Illinois Huskies
The Huskies only won by a point last week at Buffalo. They were able to control the game the way they want to though.
Marcus Childers took even more of a handle on the quarterback position with the win over Buffalo. He was solid throwing and led the team in rushing too.
The Huskies are the better team and the pressure is on as a loss to one of the conference alsorans will quickly take them out of the running for the MAC title. Their schedule is backloaded beginning with Toledo in a couple of weeks.
Bowling Green Falcons
The Falcons are not good. Oddly they are 113th in scoring offense and scoring defense. When you are that bad on both sides of the ball it doesn’t leave you much to work with. Their only hope this year is playing spoiler.
James Morgan may be the future at QB but right now he makes way too many mistakes. He is completing too few passes and it is hard to string together drives at less than 50% completion rate. The running game is promising though.
Bowling Green gives up 250ypg on the ground. They have to be concerned because the Huskies will pound you. As long as they are averaging 3.4 they will even just come right at you and dare you to stop them.

Free Week 8 NCAA Football Pick
I used to love Northern Illinois but over the last few years they have burned me. I am high on Buffalo so their win last week was not a shock as being close. Still back to back road games can be a challenge in any league.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Northern Illinois -13
This is a fade of Bowling Green more than a backing of the Huskies. You are not gong to make too much green backing the worst teams in a league like the MAC.
I think I might look at the first half line here to avoid some backdoor concern. I can easily see this one having the Huskies up double digits at the half.
