NIU Football receives top 25 votes in USA Today Poll

New, 1 comment

NIU Football is beginning to get some recognition.  It is still a big hole to climb to get into the top 25 but what might help them is their last loss was in the first half of the season.  As evidenced in previous years, late-season losses hurt and make it hard to stay or get back into the top 25.
