    CMU hushes the Huskies in a dominant 40-10 road win

    What can you say about the Northern Illinois Huskies after two second half meltdowns? In their season opener they looked okay in the first half, and the defense played well, but the offense collapsed in the second half, giving up three defensive touchdowns to the Bulls as they fell to Buffalo 49-30. This week it was more of the same.
