Fire up, Huskies!
Nothing beats a good ole’ college football rivalry game with something on the line.
NIU came in undefeated in conference play and had lost to Central Michigan in consecutive years. A victory made the Huskies bowl eligible for the third straight season and them atop the Mid-American Conference standings.
NIU throttled the Chippewas 33-7, send the “Fire up, Chips” battle cry back to Mount Pleasant.
Nothing amazing came from the game photo-wise with the unique shots coming from Cameron Bell knocking his own lineman’s helmet off and Tyrone Clark diving for a late first half interception.
Besides those a pretty general, but successful day behind the camera. Next up, arch rival Toledo on Tuesday, Nov. 9.
Until then, enjoy the best of the rest from the game here.
