FOOTBALL ON A SCHOOL NIGHT.

Still not the best idea. Better, though, to wake up (hung over, in some cases?) after a victory.
At the end of the third quarter, the Huskies (10-0, 6-0 MAC) and the Cardinals (9-2, 6-1 MAC) were deadlocked at 27-27. From there on out it was all Huskies.

The Huskies dominated the fourth quarter, finding the end zone on three occasions. NIU out-scored the Cardinals 21-0 in the final period.
Fourteen of those points came in the final minute and a half. If the offense is attempting to run out the clock, and the defenders don't tackle, a back doesn't run out of bounds. If a defender intercepts a pass with a clear path to the end zone, that defender doesn't run out of bounds.



Imaginative signs are part of the tradition, particularly with the television crews present.  The Huskie bomber hats are a recent development.  Next they'll come with storage compartments in the fashion of Stuffies.
