Go Huskies!

Is there TV for this one?
Doubt it, it's on Saturday. ESPN doesn't care about us so best case it's in CBS Sports.

CBS has been better tonight than those awful ESPN broadcast.
Akron 30 NIU 23.
Only fitting that this sh**show of a season end with a loss to Akron.

33-28 Zips

It's going to be on ESPN3.

NIU 35, Akron 24.
We are able to push around Akron and deliver big plays on the ground. The defense bullies them, too.
NIU 38, Akron 17
I guarantee Akron will not lose to Buffalo today!

GO HUSKIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Akron starting QB went to the JUCO where i live and got to see him play a couple of games. A big kid about 6-6.

Is he good?
The MAC pillow fight for last place. Sad, with as much optimism we had going into the season.

He has completed 66% of his passes. I would say he is having a decent year on a really bad team.

Ellsworth, IA? I see he is from the same hometown as our Qb recruit Mason Kidd, Lawrenceville, GA.
Prediction: 350 in attendance

Ellsworth CC is in Iowa Falls, IA.
ICCC is in Fort Dodge.
Only 3 JUCO's in Iowa play football.
There is a Ellsworth, Iowa but not where the JC is at.

Meaningless stat of the season:

NIU with their back up QB put more points up against Kentucky than #1 undefeated Georgia did this afternoon. NIU 21 to the Bulldogs 16

NIU - 35
AKR - 24
Weather forecast looks great for next week. Close to 50 degrees. Hope it holds.

NIU 2-5 MAC play
Akron 0-6 MAC play

This is a NIU home game.

I would question the loyalty of any NIU fan predicting NIU will lose this very winnable/should win/will win game.
P.S. ESPN matchup indicator has us as winners by 79.6%.
I am very loyal and stick with my Akron over NIU pick
Hammock is 5-9 in MAC home games. Let’s not pretend like there has been some big home field advantage at Huskie Stadium in recent years. There was a time when NIU was unbeatable at home but that shipped sailed once Hammock took over.

This weeks game is between two bottom of the barrel programs fighting for last place in the worst FBS conference. This may be the second time in three seasons NIU finishes in last place in the MAC. The program is about as bad as it has been in a long time and anyone thinking otherwise is nuts. Hammock is making Rod Carey look like Nick Saban.
