The Huskies are 4-0 and ranked 23rd in the country in the USA Today Coaches' Poll and with that record comes some great national publicity for the NIU program and its players, especially Heisman Trophy candidate Jordan Lynch. In case you've missed any of the national mentions this week, here's a recap to some of them with links.
Ivan Maisel podcast (talks NIU as BCS Buster at 18 minute mark)
Gene Wojciehowski column (brief mentions for NIU, Lynch under Tailgating and First Quarter headers)

In addition, Lynch and the Huskies have been the subject of some national radio chatter. Following the Purdue win, Jordan was interviewed live by Yahoo!Sports Radio and CBS Radio, and during the past week, the Huskies have come up on the Dan Patrick Show, Sirius XM College Sports (Monday and Tuesday nights) and ESPN Radio. Lynch was on the air with Chris Childers of Sirius XM and Freddie Coleman of ESPN Radio this week.
