USF adds series with Northern Illinois
USF Athletic Director Mark Harlan announced USF has added a home-and-home series with Northern Illinois University for the 2016 and 2017 seasons.
The Bulls will host NIU on Sept. 10, 2016 at Raymond James Stadium in the two teams’ fourth matchup. USF will then travel to Huskie Stadium in DeKalb, Illinois on Sept. 23, 2017 to conclude the series.
NIU has won the Mid-American Conference championship in two of the last four seasons and has been to six-straight bowl games.
The Huskies haven’t lost in their home stadium since Sept. 27, 2009, winning 27-straight home games in the meantime.
“We continue to build one of the most competitive non-conference schedules in the nation for our football program in the coming years,” Harlan said in a press release. “Northern Illinois ranks among the winningest programs in college football over the last several seasons and fits well alongside the challenging opponents we have previously announced.”
The Bulls currently lead the Huskies 2-1 in their all-time series, with the Bulls winning the last matchup 27-3 in the International Bowl in 2010.
