Go, Northern Illinois! It’s very rare that I ever root for an “Ill-annoying” team, (Bears, Bulls, Cubs, Sox), but would really like to see the Huskies upset those “pigskin pretenders” from Iowa (BTW, how many people visit, much less know where Iowa City is?).

a LOT of us visit and know where it is. Iowa has one of the biggest fanbases out there.
