DEKALB, Ill. -- The Northern Illinois men's soccer team's match this Saturday, Oct. 27, has been moved up one hour and will now begin at 12 p.m., at the NIU Soccer Complex. The switch was necessary to accommodate West Virginia's travel plans.

The Huskies and Mountaineers both enter Saturday's match in the top-three in the Mid-American Conference standings. West Virginia is currently second with a 3-1-1 conference mark while the Huskies are tied with Western Michigan for third at 2-1-1 in league play.

Last night, Northern Illinois earned a 1-0 overtime victory over Northwestern. Freshman Charlie Oliver (Crystal Lake, Ill./Crystal Lake South) won the match with his first career goal in the 91st minute.
