RE: Why NIU has a shot on Saturday
This is just a guess, but the home-and-home deal got Utah to NIU first game, so maybe they covered their trip to DeKalb or got a low guarantee for NIU to go out there in exchange. Anything is possible, but I don't see Illinois going to Akron. In fact, I don't recall Illinois going to any MAC school they've hosted.

RE: Why NIU has a shot on Saturday
For sure the $350,000 for the Utah and Vanderbilt games are for the home and home (Vanderbilt in 2022) and the $950,000 for the Nebraska game is because they won't agree to a home and home.

Upsetting and getting paid $950,000 this year would be even sweeter than the $820,000 NIU was paid for upsetting them in 2017, which was on top of the $1.027 million NIU was paid by Nebraska when the 2016 game in Chicago was canceled! If we pull the upset again I wonder if Nebraska will have second thoughts about the 2021 and 2023 games!

If we beat Nebraska again are they going to fire Scott Frost? And the AD? Since its unacceptable to lose to a MAC team

Huskies just don't have the offensive horsepower to keep the defense off the field in this game. Utes take it 34-6

You gotta believe Madawgz! If not, might as well be a Bama fan.

Huskies have a great D, but the D is limited by the offense too, they are obviously connected. Even if NIU loses by 30, it doesn't mean the season is lost, this is a freaking top 13 national team NIU is facing wihich a few people are projecting to be playing for a national championship. I think NIU's offense will get better by the end of non-conf season. The MAC is really down this year, I am more optimistic NIU can compete for a conference title this year once again.

That's hilarious. Not quite the prestige of a law firm.

NIU in my opinion has the psychological edge on this game. If the game is close we know we can beat them.....
