By DAILY CHRONICLE STAFF - sports@daily-chronicle.com

Northern Illinois kicker Mathew Sims was named one of the Lou Groza Award's "Stars of the Week" Monday.

Sims went 3 of 3 on field goals during NIU's 43-39 win over Eastern Illinois on Saturday, including a game-high 37-yarder. He did miss an extra point in the first half, snapping his streak of 64 consecutive good extra points.

Will the NIU football team play for the MAC title this year?
Yes
No
Too soon to tell
