For the second straight week the Northern Illinois Huskies come in at No. 23 in both the AP Poll and the USA Today Coaches Poll. The Huskies (6-0, 2-0 MAC) lack of movement likely has a lot to do with their uninspiring 27-20 win over Akron (1-6, 0-3) Saturday. NIU struggled to hold off the Zips' offense, and had issues of its own scoring against the Zips.
Still, the Huskies are undefeated, one of just over a dozen teams that has yet to lose. If they can keep winning they will move up s others lose. But, unless they can win more convincingly, they will have a hard time getting anywhere near the Top 15.
Ball State, which received votes in the Coaches Poll a week ago, didn't move into the Top 25 despite another win.
