The Huskies (7-3, 5-1 in the MAC) are coming off a win against Buffalo, while the Broncos (6-4, 5-1 in the MAC) dropped their first conference game to Bowling Green last week.

Players to Watch
Jamauri Bogan (RB, Western Michigan): Bogan leads the Broncos in rushing with 764 yards on the year. Also, in his last two games he tallied 118 yards against Bowling Green and 171 yards against Ball State. If the Broncos can start punching holes in NIU's defense, Bogan could play a huge factor in Wednesday's contest.
Shawun Lurry (CB, Northern Illinois): Lurry is tied for most interceptions in the nation with eight on the season. WMU QB Zach Terrell is coming off a shaky game, so you can no doubt guess that Lurry will be looking to get under Terrell's skin fast.
