Will you be watching the Orange Bowl?  Many graduates and students of Northern Illinois University will be cheering on the Huskies as they play the Florida State Seminoles Tuesday night.

Some NIU fans will even be in Florida for the game.  Matt Friedlein of Mendota told AM 1220 WLPO News that he would be attending the game with his mother, sister and girlfriend.  Friedlein and his sister are NIU alumni.

Sean Walsh, formerly of Oglesby, says he’ll be watching from a house party with other NUI alumni.  He says a year ago he wouldn’t have believed that he’d be watching his team in the Orange Bowl.

Kickoff is a7pm Tuesday.
