NIU Huskies season preview-Part 3-Last 4 games

Things get kicked up a bit for two of the last last four (hopefully 5) weeks of the Huskies season. They have games against EMU, Ball State, Ohio, and CMU. 
Week 9-EMU: We shut out Eastern last year 37-0, and they haven't made any huge improvements.  Eastern has a hard schedule before Northern with games against BSU, CMU, and Northwestern. Result Analysis: Huskies take this one, maybe in shutout fashion like last year. 
Week 10-Ball State: Ball State lost their QB to the draft, but are still a good team. They also lost a great coach to San Diego State. They still have a reasonable team, but won't repeat as MAC west champions. the Huskies fell 54-15 last year against the Cardinals. Result analysis: The Huskies and Cardinals will fight this one out, perhaps into overtime.
Week 11-Ohio: Last year Ohio had a 4-8 season,  with 12 returning starters, including 8 seniors.  The Bobcats had the worst amount of turnovers, with 31.  their worst blowout of last season was a 28-3 crushing by Bowling Green.  This year, however,  they have a somewhat easy schedule, with it's hardest games this year coming against Uconn, Buffalo, Ball State, and NIU. Result analysis: Huskies will win, seeing they can block a team with a leading sacker with 3.5 sacks. 
Week 12-Central Michigan:  The Chippewas will be no easy task, considering they have the Number 1 QB, Receivers (WRs and TEs),  DL, and LBs in the MAC, according to Althon Sports Magazine. They have the benefits of a  home game and will probably already be red hot. Result analysis: Chippewas will take this one, as well as the MAC championship.
