Northern Illinois vs Ball State College Football Picks: The Huskies are (5-3) on a three game winning streak now after a win over Bowling Green 16-13 at home. Chandler Harnish rushed 19 times for 116 yards to become the first Huskie quarterback with 100 or more rushing yards since 1990. Chandler was 5/12 for just 45 yards and 2 INT's. Harnish is going to need to throw the ball a lot better against Ball State then he did against Bowling Green (granted that was in a windstorm). The sports odds posted by the oddsmakers at Sbgglobal.com currently list Ball State -9.5 favorites to Northern Illinois heading into this matchup.
"It's going to be a challenge for us, but we are looking forward to it.

College Football Picks: NIU needs to be just effective enough through the air to prevent BSU from stacking the box against the run. NIU is no stranger to big games, don't think they're going to be intimidated by the atmosphere. Ball State is like butter…they are on a ROLL! With the extra time off, the Cards hopefully will use that time to stay in the film room and watch their last game to seek out ways to improve their performance. Ball State still has a little bit of trouble but walks off the field at HOME a winner. Under is 9-0-1 in Huskies last 10 games after allowing less than 20 points in their previous game. Under is 6-0 in Cardinals last 6 games following a bye week.
