Northern Illinois College Football Preview 2021: What Will Happen, Season Prediction

This is what a rebuild looks like.

A superpower of MAC programs for so long, Northern Illinois slipped after Rod Carey left for Temple, but Thomas Hammock has spent the last two years starting over.

Yeah, NIU was 0-6, but it’s a tweakable 0-6.

The defense went through the growing pains, the offense got a whole slew of young parts a ton of work, and now the payoff has to come.

There’s still a whole lot of work to do to go from zero to good, but there’s upside, there are options, and there are plenty of players about to mature into their roles. With over 60 underclassmen returning, watch out for the Huskies to get stronger as the year goes on.

There aren’t a lot of layups on the slate, but it’s time for Northern Illinois to be good at football again.
