It is a little early but Northern Illinois might be back in the mix in MAC West this season. If so they have to win some games on the road and they can win at Buffalo.
Buffalo might have just completed the most exciting game in their history, but it was a loss. They are a sleeper in the MAC and they might be asleep in this one.
Northern Illinois Huskies
The Huskies have a couple of non losses but they are both nonconference and are against teams with really good defenses. This team might at least be MAC legit this season.
The offense has been balanced like they want to be but lacking in the explosion we saw when the program was rolling. Marcus Childers is just a frosh but he might have grabbed the quarterback position last week.
The defense has been really, really good this season. They have not played any of the best offenses but they have only given up more than 24 points once all season.
The Bulls are having an interesting season. There is some talent there which is why they are surprising to the tune of a 6-0 ATS record. Still they are just 3-3 SU.
Tyree Jackson is the starter at QB but reserve Drew Anderson just put up the best numbers for a quarterback I can remember – 597 yards, 7 TDs with no interceptions. Seven overtimes help but we might have a QB controversy when Jackson is ready to go.
Giving up 71 points in a single game really hurts the averages as overall the Bulls have been solid on defense. They are good against the pass and bad against the run. A fact NIU is certainly aware of.

This is an interesting game for analysis. There seems to be lots of reasons to fade Buffalo, partly due to last week’s epic loss and due to the fact that maybe the markets are getting wise to this team.

That extra point is going to make this one prime teaser candidate for sure as you can drag is across a number of key numbers. Even without that in play I think the Huskies are the correct side.
I am looking for Buffalo to be a little sluggish to start this one. Once Northern Illinois establishes a lead they can bleed out the clock and rely on their defense.
