The last 10 days have been pretty good for the NIU football team. After the 34-23 win at Minnesota, Chad Spann earned honor after honor for his 223 yard day. Now with Saturday's 50-14 win at Akron to open MAC play, the Huskies are 3-2 with a three-game home stretch ahead of them.
Breaking news on Huskie Happenings: NIU has back-to-back MAC Players of the Week, as Chandler Harnish got the call today. He had a nice little Saturday... 16-for-20, 281 yards and three touchdowns nice. He took the fourth quarter off to make a trip to Bed, Bath and Beyond. After the game, The Manning Award contingent was impressed enough to put Harnish on its "trying to make the list" list.
