    38-18 ISU.

    edit: that margin will probably grow as the tailgating continues.

    Re: *** OFFICIAL *** Game Day Thread

    Here is CFN's prediction:

    Northern Illinois (0-0) at Iowa State (0-0) Sept. 2, 8:00, CSN

    Here’s The Deal … These two played a wild two-game series with NIU pulling off a 24-16 home shocker in 2003 and Iowa State winning a thrilling 48-41 shootout in 2004. This year’s matchup is even more important for the two programs with Iowa State needing every non-conference win possible to get in the hunt for a bowl game, while NIU has to come up with the victory over a mediocre Big 12 team to give the MAC a little bit of respect. The Huskies should battle Temple for the honor of being the league’s best team, and if they get blown away, it’ll be tough for anyone to pay much attention to anything else the MAC does. This is the start of a rough stretch of four road games in five weeks to open the season for NIU, while ISU has to deal with the always-tough rivalry date with Iowa next week.
    Why Northern Illinois Might Win: The Huskie offensive line could dominate the ISU defensive front. The Cyclone coaching staff is fantastic and there’s hope for production to come in a high-energy, want-to sort of way, but the talent is lacking. There isn’t a sure-thing pass rusher to count on and the size isn’t there to hold up is NIU starts blasting away. The Huskies have loaded up on the offensive front after a bit of a disappointing season, and now the ground game could be dominant at times.
    Why Iowa State Might Win: Can NIU handle the Iowa State ground game? Overall, the numbers were great for the Huskie defense last year, but Dan LeFevour and the CMU offense rolled up 257 yards and two scores on the ground. The Cyclone backfield can get in a groove with QB Austen Arnaud and RB Alexander Robinson likely to combine for about 150 yards even though the NIU linebackers might be among the best in the MAC. The defensive line has potential, but it’ll have to hold up against the zone-blocking scheme the ISU line runs extremely well.
    What To Watch Out For: And the starting NIU quarterback will be … ? Chandler Harnish is the veteran who’ll end up playing a big role in some way, shape or form, but injuries have been a problem and it’ll be hard for the team to count on him for a full season. DeMarcus Grady was a great recruit and is more of a rushing option with a live arm. A veteran, he’ll see time this year no matter who the starter is, and then there’s Jordan Lynch, the high-riser of the group this offseason getting his live arm into the race. Iowa State has to prepare for the possibility of all three.
    What Will Happen: This should go down to the wire with both running games gouging the opposing run defense. The Cyclones have a better quarterback situation with Arnaud likely to be the difference maker, and even though RB Chad Spann should be able to crank out over 100 yards, the NIU offense won’t be consistent enough to pull out the big road win.
    CFN Prediction: Iowa State 20 … Northern Illinois 13 … Line: Iowa State -3.5

    I think it will be a little higher scoring than that, but otherwise I agree.

    7 point victory prediction by CFN? I disagree.
