Meanwhile, NIU received a tough blow last week as they fell 52-32 to the Toledo Rockets. NIU was down 45-7 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. The losing side was boosted by RB Antario Brown, who punched in one rushing touchdown. Brown hadn’t helped his team much against the Ball State Cardinals two weeks ago, so this was a nice turnaround for him.
This next matchup is expected to be close, with EMU going off at just a 2.5-point favorite. Those who got lucky with them against the spread last week might want to hold off on placing bets this time since the team has yet to string together back-to-back wins against the spread.
Eastern Michigan’s victory lifted them to 4-2 while Northern Illinois’ defeat dropped them down to 1-5. Allowing an average of 38.33 points per game, the Huskies haven’t exactly asserted themselves on the defensive end. We’ll see if they can patch up the holes in their defense before their upcoming game.
