NIU showed a national audience on ESPN2 and a press box full of media from not only Chicago but the entire nation that the Huskies' 10-0 record and especially quarterback Jordan Lynch, is for real.  The Huskies defeated a Ball State team that came in 9-1 on the year with an ACC win over Virginia under its belt, and a potent passing attack.  See what the national media, as well as Tribune columnist David Haugh, had to say about NIU and Lynch in these stories:
