Buffalo vs. Northern Illinois 2012: Game time, TV schedule, odds and more

Mike DiNovo-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Huskies look to keep their win streak alive against Buffalo.

The Northern Illinois Huskies look to keep rolling in MAC play when they host the Buffalo Bulls this Saturday in Dekalb, Ill.

After a one-point loss in week one to the Iowa Hawkeyes, Northern Illinois has run through five straight wins and are currently 2-0 in the MAC. Junior quarterback Jordan Lynch has carried the multi-faceted mantle on from the departed Chandler Harnish, and leads the Huskies' offense with 1,255 passing yards and 789 rushing yards. Lynch's running capabilities make the Northern Illinois rushing offense the 11th-best in the country.

That running proficiency looks to be bad news for Buffalo, whose run defense ranks No. 93 in the country, allowing 190 rushing yards per game. Buffalo, who has yet to win over an FBS opponent this season, also sports a strong run game of its own. The Bulls average 222 rushing yards per game led by junior running back Branden Oliver, but is nursing a leg injury and may not be as effective.

Date/Time: Sat., Oct. 13, 2:30 p.m. CT

TV: ESPN3.com

Odds: Northern Illinois is favored by 12 points
