There's not too many announcements that would make me almost choke on my breakfast cereal, but this one did:
According to niuhuskies.com, he NIU Huskies will face Northwestern on September 6th, 2014.
Here's what the new AD Sean Frazier says about the game, who I'm starting to like more and more every day:
"I am extremely excited to add Northwestern, a high-quality opponent, to our 2014 football non-conference schedule," Frazier said. "Declining attendance at college football games is a national trend and scheduling has been identified as a prime factor in the decline. I am continually evaluating our future football schedules, and the addition of this game is just the first announcement regarding concerted efforts to improve our football schedule, connect with our alumni base in the Chicago region, increase exposure for NIU and promote the NIU Huskies as a national brand."
