DeKALB, Ill. - Northern Illinois alumni, fans and friends can now own a permanent remembrance of the Huskies' 2011 Mid-American Conference Championship season by taking advantage of two special offers from NIU Athletics.
The Huskies are coming off the most successful fall sports season in recent history as NIU captured three Mid-American Conference Championships, with the 2011 Northern Illinois football team claiming its first MAC title in 28 years. The Huskies tied the school record by winning 11 games for the second consecutive season, and will enter 2012 riding a nine-game winning streak.
Now, fans can relive the moments that made 2011 special - from the season-opening win over Army to the on-field celebration at the GoDaddy.com Bowl - in words and pictures by purchasing the commemorative "Celebrating Champions" book for just $20. The 64-page glossy book includes a game-by-game review of NIU football's exciting MAC Championship season, features on Northern Illinois' 19 2011 football seniors and complete season statistics. In addition, the book recaps the 2011 MAC Championships won by the NIU volleyball and men's soccer programs, including their NCAA Tournament appearances.
"Celebrating Champions," produced by NIU Athletics Media Relations Office with pictures by Scott Walstrom of NIU Media Services, is on sale now through the NIU Athletics External Office in the Convocation Center or by calling 815-753-1923. Fans can download the convenient order form (click link above and print) and fax to 815-753-7700. If ordering by mail, add $5 shipping and handling.

The personalized Lustrium/Silver Alloy with Cubic Zirconia rings are $275 each with a $9.95 shipping and handling fee, while ladies' pendants are available for $225 each. In addition to the personalization available on the side of the ring, both the rings and pendants can be engraved with a message for no extra change.
