DeKALB – The Huskies have the eighth-best rushing defense in the country. The Broncos are the 13th-best team moving the ball on the ground.
When the Northern Illinois and Western Michigan football teams meet Wednesday in DeKalb, something will have to give.
“They’re top 10 in the country at stopping the run, and we’re pretty good at running it. That’s what we lean on,” first-year Western Michigan coach Tim Lester said. “It’s a pretty interesting matchup that way. There’s a reason they’re No. 2 in the West right now.”
