If the Northern Illinois Huskies can put away the Ball State Cardinals at home in NCAA football betting action on Tuesday night, they will be one step away from winning the division and moving on to the MAC Championship Game. BSU knows that two wins will send it to the Motor City in the first week of December, though.

Week 12 College Football Matchup: Ball State Cardinals @ Northern Illinois Huskies

Location: Husky Stadium, DeKalb, IL
College Football Lines: Northern Illinois -19
Week 12 College Football TV Schedule: ESPNU

If you’re a fan of high flying teams, this is the game for you. It was only two weeks ago that these Huskies played in a 63-60 shootout that featured over 1,100 yards of offense against the Toledo Rockets on Tuesday night. QB Chandler Harnish can do it all, and he is leading a unit that has scored 40 or more points in eight of the team’s 10 games this season. NIU is good for 486.1 yards and 41.6 points per game. Harnish has accounted for 3,278 yards of total offense this year, and he is likely going to be a 3,000 yard passer and a 1,500 yard rusher when it’s said and done. He also will have double digits in both passing touchdowns (currently at 20) and rushing touchdowns (nine so far this year).

Ball State has put its points on the board as well. Don’t let the fact that this team ranks No. 75 in total offense and No. 87 in scoring fool you. The club has put 31 or more on the board in three straight weeks, and its bad offensive numbers are thanks to games that were played early in October.

However, we just don’t think that the Cardinals have the defense to get the job done. They allow 493.9 yards per game this year, and they haven’t played a fantastic schedule in all honesty either. This is Ball State’s toughest test, and especially here in DeKalb, we think that it is a test that it will not pass when push comes to shove. The Huskies could reach 60 in this game when it’s all said and done.
