NIU is reaping the spoils of it’s win over Nebraska this past Saturday.
Linebacker Jawuan Johnson has been named the MAC West Defensive Player Of The Week. He had a pick-six and nine tackles Saturday.
NIU has been named the National Team Of The Week by the Football Writers Association. Nebraska is donw this year by Nebraska standards, but any time a MAC team can go into Lincoln in front of 86,000 people and win that’s impressive. NIU is the first MAC team ever to do that.
The Huskies get to enjoy this win a little longer than usual. They don’t have a game this week. Their next game will be a week from Saturday at 22nd ranked San Diego St.
