Northern Illinois is in good shape.

The Huskies are 7-0, already have two victories against Big Ten teams and are ranked 18th in the first Bowl Championship
Series standings. Should NIU run the table and get some help, it will be in another BCS bowl game.


Quarterback Jordan Lynch has been outstanding, leading the Mid-American Conference with 370.6 yards of total offense per game. He ran for an FBS-record 316 yards in the Huskies’ victory Saturday against Central Michigan. NIU is 14th in the nation in total offense (507.8 ypg) and 20th (39.7 ppg) in scoring offense.

Grade: A.
