Was it a bump in the road or a changing of the guard?
Northern Illinois arrived in Detroit for last year's Mid-American Conference championship game with an undefeated record, but the Huskies lost 47-27 to Bowling Green, ending their shot at a third straight league title.
Star quarterback Jordan Lynch has moved on to the NFL, and Northern Illinois is expected to face a significant challenge in MAC's West division from Toledo.
The Huskies have represented the conference well, reaching the Orange Bowl at the end of the 2012 season, but the rest of the MAC has to feel as if there's an opening at the top after Northern Illinois looked so formidable for a while.
