This NIU team showed some real heart in the late stages of the fourth quarter. That last offensive drive with under five minutes to go was pretty impressive.....great athletic catches by our receivers and Harnish really showed something when it counted. We needed that two point conversion and the skill players made it happen.
The defense did bend, but they didn't break when it counted. That interception in the red zone was huge.
Our receiving corp is really stepping up when it counts.......Willie Clark, Martel Moore and Nathan Palmer all contributed. That has to put pressure on any defense when you have several guys who can go up and get the ball. And the balance we have offensively with the running game (Spann is the man) makes it even more difficult for the opposition.
Now it's time to get ready for the battle with Toledo. I see where they have a new QB, Terrance Owens, who came into today's game and put up some strong numbers.
I really like the chemistry on this Huskie team, and the fact that we rotate players to keep them fresh.
Let's pack the stadium on Nov 9th and create some noise and excitement. This team deserves it!!
