If the UConn to Bowling Green to North Texas flip-flop wasn't enough for you, well, I guess your in luck. That's because the upcoming football series with Kent St. has been changed to the upcoming football series with North Illinois, so says the Official Site. The game will be played on November 17th at NMCM and will be (as usual) televised on CSTV. The Mids will in turn make the trip to Northern Illinois in 2008.
As many of you know, Northern Illinois went 7-6 last season, led of course by sensational senior running back Garrett Wolfe. Fortunately for the Midshipmen, Wolfe will be on to the NFL next season, and won't be running wild on the Navy secondary. This should still be an interesting game which I think a lot of people are excited for. NIU has built a consistent program over the past few years and has become one of the better teams in the MAC. This game should be a good fit for the Mids, as it presents a winnable game against a quality opponent.
