NIU football 09-10 preview-Part 1-OOC schedule

The Huskies have Wisconsin, Western Illinois, Idaho, and Purdue in their OOC Schedule this year. lets go through the games individually:
Week 1-Wisconsin: Wisconsin is coming off a 7-6 with a 3-5 record in the Big 10, and the Huskies have to fight them in Wiscy territory. This game should be an indicator of how good our season will be, considering we won 1 OOC game this year. If we do good in this game we will have a good season , if not... we'll have to wait and see. Result analysis: Probably a win for the Badgers, but will probably show good fight.
Week 2-Western Illinois: there is not much you can say about this game. The Leathernecks had an OK season last year finishing at 6-5. Result analysis: Easy Huskies win.
Week 3-Purdue: Coming off a mediocre 4-8 season, purdue has also lost their QB to the Draft. Purdue has an easy season premier against Toledo, but then things get tougher against Oregon and the NIU.  However they have 2 RS senior QBs  and another frosh.  Result analysis: Huskies will probably take this one. 
Week 4-Idaho: With a 2-10 season behind them, the Vandals don't bring much to the table. Last year they got shutout 70-0 by Arizona. Result analysis: Another easy Huskies win; this one should be easier than WIU.
