NIU Heading Back To Poinsettia Bowl

NIU Athletics

The Northern Illinois University Huskies will face Utah State Dec. 26, 2013 at the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl.  University officials announced Sunday that the Huskies (12-1) will take on Utah State (8-5) of the Mountain West Conference at 8:30 p.m. CT at Qualcomm Stadium.  The game will be televised on ESPN.

The Huskies moved down to No. 23 in the BCS standings after a loss Friday to Bowling Green.

The Huskies previously played in the Poinsettia Bowl in 2006 when they lost to TCU.  NIU is 4-4 in bowl games as a major college team (since 1969) with a 5-8 record in bowls all-time.
