2012 FOOTBALL OUTLOOK FROM ORLANDO

|

The Orlando Sentinel is counting down the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) teams (minus the four new teams to FBS in 2012) and the Northern Illinois University ranked No. 64 on their countdown. The defending Mid-American Conference champion Huskies were the highest rated team from the MAC West Division and the second highest MAC team in the poll. The only other conference school that hasn't been ranked is the school NIU beat to win its first MAC title since 1983, Ohio.


When you get to the strengths portion of the review, there is a reference to a Jordan Ward that will lead the way for the secondary. No, NIU did not sign a new player. The Sentinel was referring to Jimmie Ward.
