A year ago, the Chants saw their perfect season end with a 37-34 overtime loss to Liberty in the game. Northern Illinois boasts the second-youngest team in the Bowl Subdivision and will try to enhance its postseason record. The Mid-American Conference champion is 4-9 in bowl games.

Kickoff is at 6 p.m. and will air on ESPN2.
