The NIU football team abides by a simple motto: The Hard Way. Few seasons in recent history have better exemplified those words than 2015.
The Huskies had the top team in the nation on the ropes, only to lose by a touchdown. They watched four quarterbacks fall to injury. They had to come from behind in back-to-back November games against rivals Toledo and Western Michigan.
In the end, however, the Huskies earned a share of the MAC West title for the sixth straight year and are headed to the MAC Championship Game in Detroit, against the Falcons of Bowling Green State University.
If you can’t join the Huskies at Ford Field, be sure to tune into the game at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 4, on ESPN2. You can also be a part of the excitement by following the Huskies and their fans via NIU social media and checking for game updates online.
