The Northern Illinois University Huskies will take a bus east on Interstate 88 next fall to suit up against the University of Toledo in the first-ever football game hosted at the home of the White Sox.

Northern Illinois University and the University of Toledo will play in the “Huskie Chi-Town Showdown,” the first football game in the 25-year history of U.S. Cellular Field, on Wednesday, November 9, 2016.  Annually one of the Mid-American Conference’s premiere contests, the #MACtion game between MAC West Division rivals will air nationally on an ESPN Network at a time to be determined.

The Huskies won’t ever get the recognition of our country’s powerhouse schools although NIU is consistently one of the better football programs in Illinois. It’s nice to see some recognition for a team that has dominated the MAC for nearly a decade.
