MIAMI BEACH -- Northern Illinois is about as far away as you can get from the sunny beaches of Miami in late December. And so you would figure the Northern Illinois Huskies would be a mystery to those sunning themselves on the sand.

We did. We hatched a story idea where we would hand out prizes to people who answered our N.I.U. trivia questions correctly. At first, we thought up rather easy ones such as, "In what part of the state is Northern Illinois University?" But as he hit the beaches, Sports Reporter Peter Fleischer found the people of Miami Beach know a lot more about the Huskies than you might think. Watch the story and see.
