We have reached week seven of the college football season and most games this weekend are conference showdowns. In this one it’s a MAC showdown when the Ohio Bobcats make the trip to DeKalb to take on the Northern Illinois Huskies.
The visiting team has won the last two games played between the two teams.
The Ohio Bobcats have played a tough schedule so far this year but they come into this game with a 3-2 record and still have high hopes for this season.
In their last game they took on the Kent State Golden Flashes and on paper they were a much better team but they could only muster up a point win.
A big storyline to watch coming into this game is who will be under center for the Bobcats. Nathan Rourke is dealing with a shoulder injury and it’s unclear if he will start in this game.
If he can’t go the Bobcats Quinton Maxwell who has been decent this year throwing for 233 yards, two touchdowns and zero interceptions.
They are facing a tough defense in this game and whoever is under center is going to need to have a big game to pull the upset.
Northern Illinois Huskies
On the other side of this matchup is the Northern Illinois Huskies who have also played a tough schedule but they look like a team that can compete for the MAC and they are battle tested.
They come into this game having won two games in a row and in both games the lines were close but they covered the spread.
The Huskies are a good defensive team and that is what has led to the success so far this season. Coming into this game they are giving up only 23.7 points per game.
The Huskies are led at quarterback Marcus Childers who has had an up and down season. So far this year he has thrown for 804 yards, eight touchdowns and five interceptions.

I think if Rourke plays it will be a lot closer but if he doesn’t play this could get ugly early.
