Quick Lane Bowl Prediction - Duke Vs. Northern Illinois Football Odds


When: December 26, 2017 - 5:15 p.m. ET (ESPN)

Where: Ford Field, Detroit, Mich.

Who: Duke Blue Devils vs. Northern Illinois Huskies

Mid-major teams always love their shot against the Power Five schools, and Northern Illinois has earned that right this year at the Quick Lane Bowl.

The Huskies were far from the best team in the MAC this year, but they did score a win at Nebraska back in September and played relatively well in conference ball.

NIU was overmatched by Toledo at the Glass Bowl at the start of November, and that's the loss that assured it wouldn't win the conference. Still, there was nothing to be ashamed of, especially in a year that starting quarterback Ryan Graham was lost for the season in the very first game.

David Cutcliffe surely has a history that suggests he should be in line for a better job. That said, he keeps rejecting the overtures from other teams and seems to be content to stay at Duke for the rest of his career.

Cutcliffe did a really nice job to rally this team into the bowl season after losing six straight games. A 21-16 loss to Army, the team's sixth loss of the campaign could have (and should have) been the end of the dream of playing into December, but the Blue Devils rallied to upset wins over Georgia Tech and Wake Forest.

Ironically, four of Duke's six wins this year came as a betting underdog.

For as much of a MAC powerhouse as Northern Illinois has been, it hasn't had a great history in bowl games. The Huskies' string of four straight bowl losses started with the embarrassing defeat against Florida State when they reached the Orange Bowl in 2012. Since then, the team has been beaten in the Poinsettia Bowl twice and the Boca Raton Bowl.

It's hard to believe that Duke only has one bowl win since the 1960 Cotton Bowl, and that came just two years ago. The Dookies won the Pinstripe Bowl in New York, and they're going to look to make it two straight bowl victories this year in the Quick Lane Bowl.
