Northern Illinois Huskies Football Bowl History

One of the MAC's winningest and most consistent programs in recent years, the NIU Huskies played in a bowl game each year from 2008-2013. As the BCS era closed out and the college football playoff kicked off in 2014, NIU can lay claim to being one of the few non-BCS conference participants when they fell to Florida State 31-10 in the 2012 Orange Bowl. Historically, Northern Illinois has played in the Poinsettia Bowl twice in program history.
