This book will hit the shelves just in time for the 2012 season!
At Northern Illinois University football is king. With fans still savoring NIU’s victory over Fresno State in the 2010 Humanitarian Bowl and the Mid-American Conference Championship in 2011, the Huskies have never been more popular. And with the team continuing to improve after several strong seasons, the ranks of its loyal supporters will only increase.
Newcomers and hardcore Huskie lifers alike will want to get their hands on Dan Verdun’s extensively researched guide to football at NIU. Verdun takes on Huskie history decade by decade, and each chapter is filled with fascinating interviews with dozens of players, coaches, and reporters on the local sports beat. Evoking a potent mix of school pride and nostalgia, Northern Illinois Huskies Football highlights important moments, memorable games, and enduring traditions. Lavishly illustrated with images from throughout the program’s storied history, and with a foreword by beloved former head coach Joe Novak, Verdun’s vivid and exciting work deserves a place on any college football fan’s bookshelf—or next to the cooler at your next Huskie tailgating party.
