Army @ Northern Illinois
Prediction: Army 21, Northern Illinois 24
Army finished last season with the lowest pass offense in all of division 1 football. Northern Illinois didn't fair much better (85th), but that should be enough in a home game. The MAC champions know they are the favorites in this one, and I expect them to come out ready to play. Army will keep the game closer than the Vegas odds predict (10 point underdogs). A late Northern Illinois field goal will ultimately sink their hopes for a victory.
