NIU's improved tackling yields better results in 2012
DeKALB – Sixty points, 589 yards of total offense.
Toledo's offense had its way with Northern Illinois' defense last year at the Glass Bowl, even though the Huskies gutted out a 63-60 victory. The Rockets only punted two times, had 33 first downs and racked up 265 rushing yards.
Last season, however, NIU had a young defense working through some growing pains. That unit gave up 30.3 points per game, a total which ranked just ninth in the Mid-American Conference. They gave up a whopping 415.2 yards, a mark that, once again, was good for only ninth place in the league.
