2012 NIU Huskies Bowl Projections Week 9: Getting interesting

New, 3 comments

Where will the Northern Illinois Huskies end up for the 2012 Bowl Season?

Bob Levey

A couple observations from this week:

  • Only one prognosticator thinks NIU is going to win the MAC, so I included the Little Caesars Bowl picks if NIU wasn't picked for that one. They get the first pick and will likely pick the MAC Champ.
  • Detroit probably won't have a bowl-eligible B1G team to choose from. Except CFN thinks Purdue could end up there.
  • Louisiana Tech is a good ranked opponent. If we were to play them in the Potato Bowl the scoreboard would break. Sure, why not extract revenge from the 2008 Independence Bowl.
  • Arkansas State again in Detroit? GROSS
