Inside of Rockford not many. Outside of Rockford very few.

A 55 ranked differential?
Really?
Why is #19 only favored to win by 11?
I am hoping that NIU moves ahead 20 spots after Saturday night.

Because there is no direct correlation between ranking differential and points scored. Weather, home field, a lucky bounce, bad officiating, momentum, injuries, etc., are not factors associated with a ranking, but they can impact scoring.
In the event the Huskies lose, are you expecting NIU to drop 20 spots?

No.

While the Illini FB team may suck, they have exponentially more resources than NIU.
If u EPAsnoopy were an Illini fan you would be calling for Lovie Smith's head.

Secondly you under-estimate the strength of the Nebraska team.

This Nebraska team has a strong Kirk Ferentz smell to it, they feel like Iowa.

In the sense of permanent coaches very much like Iowa.
I think that Iowa is allot better though.

Tanner Lee feels like an Iowa QB, their approach on offensive which is fairly conservative feels like Iowa, somewhat stingy on defense like Iowa

In Rockford, more than care about NIU.
It boggles the mind that all the posters on here who brag about never buying let alone reading or caring what's in a newspaper, then can't understand the economics: less subscribers / less readers = fewer ads = less space = less coverage = less subscribers / readers = budget cuts in staff = less coverage = fewer ads = fewer pages and space = less coverage = less subscriber / readers = fewer newspapers = more cuts = fewer staff and on and on.
In the 80s, it wasn't unusual for NIU's press box to have writers from the Tribune, Sun-Times, Daily Herald, Register-Star, Aurora Beacon-News, DeKalb Daily Chronicle, Elgin Courier-News, Dixon Telegraph. In addition to the Huskie Radio Network on flagship WLBK plus an NIU student radio station, there were also single representatives from smaller stations like WRHL. Every MAC school had at least one daily paper, a student paper, and maybe one other newspaper making the trip to DeKalb.
For those of you who missed the news, former President William Monat recently passed away. He was famous for telling people when he was first at NIU serving in the capacity of Provost, then sports information director Bud Nangle kicked him out of the press box because there was no room for university administrators. Monat backed Brigham in building the President's Box underneath the press box.
Ask Korcek what it used to be like. The first time Iowa basketball came to Evans, there were seven different stations broadcasting the game for Iowa, now there's one Hawkeye Network.
Don't expect to see anyone from the Rockford Register-Star unless: a) NIU runs the table to a big bowl, b) a kid from Rockford becomes a star player, or c) something bad happens.

Will any of the DeKalb bars and or other places be showing the game live?

Secondly you under-estimate the strength of the Nebraska team.

Thirdly : They beat Nebraska and Michigan State last year.

Actually our Nebraska win came in 2015, not that it matters lol

I would have never wanted Lovie as a coach in the first place. He was a below average coach in the NFL. He's the same guy who stuck with Rex Grossman, who single-handily, lost them the super bowl with his fumble and interception issues.
