DEKALB (WREX) -

Thanks to Western Michigan's 35-30 victory over #24 Toledo on Black Friday, the NIU Huskies are going back to Detroit for their sixth straight MAC Championship game.

The Huskies will play Bowling Green next Friday at Ford Field, the third straight year that both teams will play for the conference title. NIU won last year's game in a blowout, 51-17. The Falcons won the 2013 MAC Championship in a 47-27 victory.

PJ Fleck's Broncos outlasted the Rockets in Toledo, sending the MAC West into a three-way tie with WMU, Toledo, and NIU. The Huskies owned the tiebreaker by virtue of wins against both teams.
