Scratching the 28-year Itch

Last time NIU won the MAC Championship was 1983—28 years ago.

The Huskies’ past two trips? Two last second heartbreaking losses.

This trip? The tables were turned and NIU overcame a 20-0 halftime deficit to hit a field goal as time expired, winning 23-20.

It was a melee on the field afterward and I was regretting not having some sort of 24-70 or wide angle. The 50mm gave me some good shots but could have had better trophy shots.

Fun game though. Had some great action shots that you can see here.

Next and last game of NIU’s that I’ll shoot will be Jan. 8 in Mobile, Ala. Bowl here I come!
