Two days away from the biggest game of Northern Illinois' season, get ready for Toledo-NIU with Episode 11 of the HuskieWire Vidcast.

Daily Chronicle Northern Illinois beat writer Steve Nitz and sports editor Ross Jacobson discuss the all-important showdown between the Huskies (9-1, 6-0 Mid-American Conference) and Rockets (8-2, 5-1 MAC). NIU junior quarterback and Heisman Trophy candidate Jordan Lynch also appears in this episode to discuss his standout season.

The 8 p.m. kickoff (broadcast on ESPN2) at Huskie Stadium against the Rockets is a critical game for both teams. If NIU wins, the Huskies would clinch the Mid-American Conference West Division and a third consecutive bid to the Mid-American Conference title game. If Toledo wins, the Huskies' chances of a return trip to the MAC title game in Detroit would take a devastating blow.
