Comments (...) | Add Comments

Northern Illinois' 2013 schedule isn't quite set in stone, but the Huskies know every opponent they will be playing. 

The Mid-American Conference released each team's conference opponents for the 2013 season on Wednesday.

Northern Illinois will have home games against Ball St., Eastern Michigan, Western Michigan and Akron. The Huskies will go on the road to face Central Michigan, Toledo, Kent State and Massachusetts. 

The dates for these games have not been set.

The Huskies' five MAC West games were already determined, but the crossover games change each year. Kent State went 11-3 last season, winning the MAC East title before losing to the Huskies, 44-37, in the MAC Championship game. Akron and UMass finished at the bottom of the MAC East, each finishing 1-11. The Huskies defeated Akron, 37-7, on the road while beating UMass, 63-0, at home. 

NIU's non-conference games had already been scheduled. The Huskies play at Iowa in the opener before a bye week. NIU then goes on the road to Idaho, hosts Eastern Illinois and travels to Purdue before starting MAC play.
