2020

It wasn’t that long ago that the MAC was the Huskies’ yard. Lately, though, they’ve been hanging out at the other end of the conference with the Likes of Akron and Bowling Green. The offense wasn’t terrible, managing to score in spite of it’s many weaknesses, but the D was pretty bad.

2021

The Huskies are another team who won’t be helped all that much by the Super Senior season. In a normal year, the returning talent would be enough to carry them at least to a bowl. There are weapons on O… enough to keep some games interesting. The D won’t be much better, so don’t expect much.

If Things Go Well

3-9

They’ll beat Maine and Bowling Green, and if the O is on they could steal an upset somewhere.

If They Don’t

2-10

If there isn’t improvement then it’ll be Maine and BG…. and a bunch of blowout losses.

Prediction

3-9

NIU will be better, but you won’t know it looking at the record; everyone’s better. It’s a young team, so look for improvement as the year progresses, but that won’t matter much either; the back end is loaded.
