PHOTO: Northern Illinois faces Eastern Michigan in the snow

No. 24 Northern Illinois is aiming for an 11th-straight win to finish the regular season at Eastern Michigan. But as this HuskieWire photo shows, they'll have to deal with more than just the Eagles.

One thing they won't have to deal with is the Rynearson Stadium crowd: though the Eagles never draw well even in the best of times, HuskieWire estimated the elements had limited Friday's actual attendance to not "more than 500 fans."

Which is a shame -- even when it's a 10-1 team against a 2-9 team, football in the snow is still football in the snow, right?
