Why Northern Illinois Will Win

The defense has a shot to keep this in range.

What’s Going To Happen

Buffalo has the best team in the MAC coming into the season. It has the most offensive talent, the league’s best defense, a great pass rush, and the overall experience to rip through the season. It can all be taken apart, though, but NIU owning the clock.

The Huskies will keep the score in range for three quarters, and then the UB offense will shine through in the fourth as it pulls away.
