For a while the Huskies dominated in the MAC while building a national profile too. They are trying to get back to that status and a win here would help.
San Diego State has been impressive this season. This game is in a weird spot though as they opened Mountain West play with a win over Air Force last week.
Northern Illinois Huskies
Nebraska is not having a good season. Still it not that often that a MAC school would get a road win in the Big Ten. The Huskies almost beat Boston College in their opener too.
Even though they are having some success this is not the same Northern Illinois football team we fell in love with 5 years ago. They are still struggling to get what they need from their QB. The starter is Daniel Santacaterina. They need him to be better.
They have not played any juggernauts but the defense has been good giving up just 16ppg. San Diego State is efficient bot not explosive on offense so they should be able to have some success.
San Diego State Aztecs
Starting conference play on the road is not easy but the Aztecs took care of business beating Air Force by 4. They covered as as small favourite. Each week they have to ever more aware of the real possibility of going 12-0.
Rashaad Penny was over 125 yards for the fourth game in a row. He is as good a bet as any to top 2000 yards this season. Last year Donnel Pumphrey rushed for 220 against NIU with Penny kicking in 65 in relief. He will be featured this time.
The defense has been good but not great so far this season. However, this is a matchup they can dominate with NIU not particularly strong in any one area. If they get turnovers this will be a rout.

San Diego State is not only winning but they are covering, three straight. This is an interesting game because of the timing but I think coach Long will have them whipped up to dominate.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: San Diego State -11
Both of these programs have been underdog darling of mine in the past. I know we may not be used to seeing SDSU as a favourite like that but I am comfortable with it. They can easily win each half by a TD.
The only chance that Northern Illinois has is if they can stop the run and the Aztecs commit some terrible mistakes like pick sixes or returns for TD. I am not willing to back on that.
