Wyoming at Northern Illinois odds, picks and prediction


The Wyoming Cowboys (1-0) and Northern Illinois Huskies (1-0) meet Saturday at Huskie Stadium in DeKalb, Ill., for a 1:30 p.m. ET kickoff. Below, we look at the Wyoming vs. Northern Illinois odds and lines, and make our expert college football picks, predictions and bets.

Wyoming was lucky to escape at home against FCS Montana State in the opener. Montana State carried a 7-3 lead into the fourth quarter before the offense finally picked up for both sides.

The Bobcats held a 16-12 lead with 2:17 to go, but Cowboys QB Sean Chambers provided the late heroics with a 21-yard scoring strike to TE Treyton Welch with 47 ticks left in regulation for the winner.

Meanwhile, NIU raised a lot of eyebrows by surprising Georgia Tech 22-21. Michigan State transfer QB Rocky Lombardi paid immediate dividends with the TD strike with 38 seconds left in regulation. The Huskies elected to go for two rather than the game-tying extra point, and they converted for the outright win as 19-point underdogs.
