This great duo will be putting together many highlight reel plays together throughout the 2014 season.

The Rocket's offense is now being led by sophomore quarterback Logan Woodside, who has proven that he can put up incredible numbers and win games as well. The Huskies will need to slow down this explosive offense, and they know that they have the right roster to make this happen. This is going to be one amazing clash, so make sure you don't miss out by getting your tickets to Huskie Stadium today.

Northern Illinois Huskies Football History

The Huskies began playing football all the way back in 1899, bringing top flight college football to DeKalb, Illinois. The early years of the program saw the team competing against local high schools as they tried to get their program up and running. Professor John L. Keith brought the sport to the university, after seeing it played during his time as a graduate student at Harvard. Keith was creator, coach and sometime player for the program, leaving quite a legacy behind in Huskie lore. Times have certainly changed since the early days, with the Huskies now facing off against some of the biggest names in all of college football and finding themselves on national television multiple times a season. The same team that played their first games playing their home games at a nearby high school, won a National Championship in 1963, a season when they were members of theInterstate Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. The Huskies went undefeated in 1963, when they finished their dream season with a victory over Missouri State in the Mineral Water Bowl, the first bowl game victory in program history. The Huskies have been extremely successful over the last few years, especially with the 12-1 finish in 2012, when they earned a ticket to the Orange Bowl.
