2012 NIU Football Schedule Released (Finally)

We have releases from the official site and HUSKIE WIRE. We knew the non-conference slate, but with the reduction of Temple from the MAC conference they had to switch a lot of things around.

In terms of non-conference, Army is a huge trap game before getting Kansas at home, the biggest game in Huskie Stadium in years. Army has one of the best teams they've had in a long, long time.

For the conference schedule, it's fairly tame.

It The homeslate looks entirely beatable, with CMU probably being the toughest test. We'll be motivated to beat them after last year's fiasco but it does take place after the KU game.

The road is where NIU might struggle with a much less experienced offense. Ball State will be tricky always with Lembo in charge, WMU's Cubit will be fighting for his job and a potential letdown in the season ender @ EMU with Ron English still in charge.

I especially like the break right before the Toledo game, which happens to land on a Wednesday. The final game of the season will take place on the Friday before Thanksgiving. No one will be in Ypsilanti for that one.

What are your thoughts on the schedule next season?
