Utah v Northern Illinois breakdown

Northen Illinois played a tough fist half against Iowa last week. They blocked a punt and picked off a well thrown ball from Nate Stanley. Overall though they never came close to challenging Iowa for the win. Iowa’s defensive line really gave NIU problems and I predict Utah’s will do the same. Iowa was able to get pressure without bringing extra pressure. It was all about the defensive line causing issues. Utah has a better defensive line than Iowa. The line is Utah (-11) and I like the Utes to cover. Here are some of the plays that stood out to me while I was breaking down NIU this morning.
