ESPNU ADDED TO COMCAST, DIRECTV TIER ONE

ESPN, along with DIRECTV and Comcast, announced that ESPNU will now be available on those services tier one packages. ESPNU will be now available to more than 46 million viewers (about 1/6 of the people in America). For DIRECTV subscribers (like myself, incidentally) ESPNU HD will launch by the end of the first quarter of 2010.

This is great news for Huskie fans, with three games for the 2009 season (Eastern Michigan, Ball State, and Central Michigan) that could end up on ESPNU. This also means that football fans from across the country will get to know NIU even better!

2008-09 SPRING WRAP - DAY FOUR

It was a year of change for the NIU women's soccer program. Under first year head coach Carrie Barker, the Huskies finished the season the season 9-6-5 with a 5-4-2 record in MAC play. In addition to a new coach, the team opened up a new facility, the Northern Illinois Soccer and Track & Field Complex.

Barker opened her career at NIU in stellar fashion, with a 1-0 win over in-state rival Eastern Illinois, which doubled as the first match at the new stadium. The Huskies kept the momentum rolling, getting off to the best start in program history at 4-0-3.

NIU powered into the MAC season with a 2-1 win over Bowling green, extending a home unbeaten streak to eight matches. The Huskies also scored three straight wins in conference play from Oct.10-17.

The wins piled up in the regular season gave the Huskies the sixth-seed heading into the MAC Tournament, where they faced a tough Eastern Michigan team, falling 2-0 to end the season.

The Huskies showed signs of excellence in 2008 in Barker's first year, and succeeded in the classroom as well, with three ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District members (Lindsey Curnock, Thea Johnson and Annie Wyer).
