One thing is for sure on Friday night when the Bobcats and the Huskies do battle, and that’s that the potential is there for a whole heck of a lot of points to be scored. We’ve seen NIU play games into the 120s in total points this year, and we know that Ohio has the same type of potential.

These two quarterbacks are largely the same type of player, as both QB Chandler Harnish and QB Tyler Tettleton can really light it up both with their arm and their legs. Harnish is a rare quarterback who has over 1,000 rushing yards and over 2,500 passing yards, and when the season is said and done with, those numbers will probably read 3,000 passing and 1,500 rushing to go with right around 40 total touchdowns against just the five INTs that he currently has on the campaign.

The real question is going to be whether or not the Ohio defense can slow down the Huskies. When NIU fails to score in the 40s or more, it tends to struggle. In the end, we think that the Bobcats are going to find a way to keep this one incredibly close with its defense, and in the end, this one is going to come right down to the wire. Expect a close call either way. Take the points.
