For the Northern Illinois Huskies, Saturday is a good opportunity to blow the dust off last week’s loss to the Iowa Hawkeyes and keep focused on the mission at hand: make 2018 a successful championship-caliber season. The first hurdle to clear to continue that mission is their week 2 opponent, the Utah Utes. Welcoming a Pac 12 opponent to Dekalb for the first time, NIU looks for another P5 upset to add to the mantle.
