NIU football announces single-game tickets go on sale Thursday
Coming off its appearance in the Orange Bowl, Northern Illinois expects broader interest this season as it announced Wednesday that single-game tickets for its five home football games go on sale Thursday at 10 a.m.
NIU bills itself as “the winningest team in the state of Illinois” and points out that Huskie Stadium has undergone a fresh upgrade. Tickets can be purchased
through the NIU Athletics Ticket Office in the Convocation Center, online via Ticketmaster and NIUHuskies.com or by phone at 815-753-PACK (7225).
NIU enters the 2013 season riding a 21-game winning streak at Huskie Stadium — making it the longest on-campus home winning streak in the nation. NIU has not lost a home game in DeKalb since Sept. 26, 2009, and “the streak is particularly significant to the Huskie seniors, many of whom have never lost a home game at Huskie Stadium during their Northern Illinois careers,” the school points out in its press release.
The home opener is Sept. 21 against Eastern Illinois and has been designated as the “White Out” game with the first 3,000 fans receiving white “Be Proud. Be NIU.” T-shirts. Northern Illinois will raise its 2012 MAC Championship flag and after the game.
