A Respectable Loss

The Fighting Huskies of Northern Illinois University were fortunate enough to achieve a bowl bid in coach Jerry Kill's first season in DeKalb. But the luck ran out with the game clock as the Huskies fell to the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs, 17-10, in the dog fight that was Independence Bowl XXXIII. Despite Northern's domination of the game stats, turnovers and special teams breakdowns ultimately told the full story.

NIU loses alot of seniors in some key positions, but Coach Kill and freshman quarterback Chandler Harnish give Huskie Nation much to look forward to in the coming seasons.

"Forward together forward...."
