About this Article

Maybe now Northern Illinois will get some respect. Huskies coach Dave Doeren hopes Wednesday's convincing 31-24 win over Toledo, shown nationally on ESPN2, will finally get his 10-1 team ranked in the top 25 polls. The victory gave NIU its third straight Mid-American Conference West title and a spot in the MAC championship game on Nov. 30 in Detroit."I think we should have been ranked last week," Doeren said.
