Update for Week No. 3 of preseason camp...The Huskies have tweaked their entire week three practice schedule. NIU has pushed its afternoon practices BACK to 5 p.m. on Monday and Wednesday, while Friday afternoon's practice will begin at 6 p.m. On Tuesday and Thursday (single practice days), NIU will take the field at 4 p.m. Morning practices on Monday, Wednesday and Friday remain at 8:35 a.m. and the time for Saturday's scrimmage (11:35 a.m.) has not changed. The practices will also go no more than two hours with several scheduled for 1:50. These changes ARE reflected in the schedule below.
Update No. 3 for Saturday, August 13/Sunday August 14...The Northern Illinois Huskies will hold their 11th practice of the preseason on Sunday, August 14 beginning at 11 a.m. when the specialists take the field at Huskie Stadium. The entire team will be on the field with the full-squad practice beginning at 11:10 a.m. The practice is scheduled to last approximately 90 minutes.
Update No. 2 for Saturday, August 13...Due to the continuing threat of thunderstorms in the DeKalb area over the next several hours, Northern Illinois' football practice scheduled for 5 p.m. Saturday at Huskie Stadium has been cancelled and will be rescheduled. Once the new practice time is set, it will be posted here so check back later for that information.
Update for Saturday, August 13...Northern Illinois' practice time for Saturday, August 13 has been pushed BACK to 5 p.m. The Huskies were originally scheduled to be on the Huskie Stadium turf at 2:35 p.m. but sent out word this afternoon of the Saturday time adjustment. Practice remains open and the Huskies are expected to scrimmage at least part of the day. Again, that's a 5 p.m. start for Saturday's NIU practice at Huskie Stadium.
Update for Monday, August 8...after getting onto the field for just a few minutes this afternoon before lightning sent the Huskies indoors, NIU will resume practice at 7:30 p.m. tonight on Huskie Stadium, weather permitting. The practice will be the first in full pads for NIU this preseason.
