Huskies Headed West

NIU's football team could face some hurdles when it travels to Idaho this weekend.
DeKalb, Illinois-NIU's footbal team is back in game preparation mode after a bye week. The Huskies will travel to Idaho this weekend. The Vandals have been soundly beaten in their first two games, but Huskie coach Rod Carey has some concerns about this trip out west.

"We've got a long trip out there, and then we're staying at a hotel that's about two hours away," says head coach Rod Carey. "And then playing in a dome that can be loud, and then we're playing a team it's their home opener, and, you know, they're hungry."

Carey says receiver TommyLee Lewis will be ready to play. He injured an ankle in the opening game at Iowa.
