What’s Going To Happen
After a disappointing loss to Boston College, Northern Illinois has to rebound in a hurry or the season could be lost with road games at Nebraska and San Diego State up next – and four the next five games on the road.
Eastern Illinois survived a slugfest against Indiana State last week, but the offense struggled to get moving, needing a pick six to survive the 22-20 battle. Can the Panther defense slow down a NIU offense that didn’t get anything out of the running backs against Boston College and couldn’t generate the big play needed late?
Ryan Graham only completed 15-of-38 passes, but he threw two touchdown passes and ran for a team-high 99 yards. He’ll have to do it all again, but this time, the defense will make things a little easier.
It won’t be easy, but NIU will pull away in the second half with the ground game finally starting to break through.
