Breaking down and analyzing the 2017 Northern Illinois Huskies football schedule
2017 Northern Illinois Huskies Best Case Scenario
The Huskies come out roaring with a home upset over Boston College to kick things off, and after a 2-2 start – losing at Nebraska and San Diego State – they road through the first part of the MAC season. The first three conference games are against teams that didn’t go bowling last year – Kent State, at Buffalo, at Bowling Green – and then comes the home run of three games in four weeks, all in the middle of the week. They shock Toledo on the road, and get by Western Michigan at home to take the MAC West.
2017 Northern Illinois Huskies Worst Case Scenario
NIU gets rolled by Boston College, starts out 1-3, and struggles against Kent State to start the MAC season. They get shocked by a resurgent Bowling Green on the road, and lose all reasonable hope for winning the West with a loss at Toledo. A loss to Western Michigan puts a winning season and a bowl game in jeopardy, and then it’s all gone with a Friday loss to Central Michigan.
