Northern Illinois Huskies 2016 Schedule Breakdown

The bus continues to DeKalb for a look at the Northern Illinois Huskies:

9/3 at Wyoming
9/10 at USF
9/17 San Diego State
9/24 Western Illinois
10/1 at Ball State
10/8 at Western Michigan
10/15 Central Michigan
10/22 Buffalo
11/1 Bowling Green
11/9 Toledo (at Chicago)
11/16 at Eastern Michigan
11/25 at Kent State

Notes: NIU will not play a Power 5 team in 2016, which is a good thing, but their September schedule is still a tough one to work through.
I Project a win over Wyoming, and a win over Western Illinois, but it is tough for me to gauge games at USF and a home date with San Diego State. I will pick a win over USF, and a loss to San Diego State,  but tentatively.
The Huskies should have a strong October, with wins over Ball State, Central Michigan, and Buffalo, but a loss could come on the road at Western Michigan.
I will project wins over Bowling Green, Eastern Michigan, and Kent State in November, but I can see a loss against Toledo in Chicago.
Overall Projected Record: 9-3
