For the longest time, if you were looking for a MAC team to take to upset a B1G opponent, the Northern Illinois Huskies were always a safe bet. For years, NIU fans have been able to enjoy a head and shoulders rise above the conference. Under the Carey regime, the Huskies have fallen back to Earth a bit, but Saturday against the Iowa Hawkeyes is a tremendous opportunity to prove the haters and naysayers wrong with a big win in Kinnick Stadium.
