Northern Illinois, led by stud QB Jordan Lynch, squeaked into the BCS following a 12-1 MAC campaign. With the win over Kent State in the MAC Championship game, the Huskies became the first MAC team to ever bust the BCS. They will take on the Florida State Seminoles and their top five-ranked defense on January 1 in the Orange Bowl.
Lynch recently made it no secret on how he felt the Huskies offense would treat the Noles defense. Following are tweets from Steven Greenberg, Sporting News national college football writer.
Those are fighting words! It should be fun watching FSU’s vaunted defensive line chase Lynch around.
