RE: NIU natoinal ranking for defense
They are fun to watch play! Buffalo is going to sling it next week. We have been facing run heavy offenses all season. Buffalo is pass first from what I saw yesterday. It should be an interesting matchup in Buffalo.

Does the team fly out to Buffalo? Please tell me thats not a bus ride.

I would imagine they would fly that one, not sure though. Definitely will be an interesting matchup. Seeing their QB yesterday scared me a little, he gets rid of it quick and with some velocity, its going to be a test.

Massey's early line on the game is Huskies by 7.

Our DB's will be tested.

Our D line can help our dba by making the QB uncomfortable

Our secondary with jump a few of those passes. Hopefully, we can hang onto them. We dropped three yesterday in the fourth quarter... It could be the difference in the game if our offense and special teams decide to be generous YET again.

I'm confident in our DBs to handle the MAC WRs. Our D is going to get pressure on Buffalos QB

Normally if a bus trip is longer than 5 or 6 hours, they will fly.
