Bowl: Arkansas State vs. Northern Illinois Live Coverage and Updates

Ian BergCorrespondent IJanuary 7, 2012

The Arkansas State Red Wolves (10-2, 8-0 Sun Belt) are set to take on the Northern Illinois Huskies (10-3, 7-1 MAC) tonight in the Bowl. The game is set to kickoff at 9 p.m. ET and will be televised on ESPN. 

Look for lots of offense in this game as both teams are led by stud signal callers. With Ryan Alpin looking to make plays for the Red Wolves and Chandler Harnish looking to continue rolling up stats with his dual-threat abilities, this could be one of the highest scoring games of the bowl season. 

The Red Wolves are coming off a very impressive season under former coach (and current Ole Miss coach) Hugh Freeze. They managed to win the Sun Belt on their way to a 10-win season. It was the second time in school history the Red Wolves have won the Sun Belt; they previously won the conference in 2005. 

The Huskies will be led by Chandler Harnish this Sunday. The senior quarterback is eighth nationally in total offense and ranks 12th in the country in passing efficiency. Harnish will be a tough stop for the Red Wolves and will likely have a very good game by the end of the night. 

Both teams are looking to finish their 2011 campaigns on the highest of notes with a big win here in Mobile, Alabama. Check back one hour prior to kickoff as live updates will begin from Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Alabama at the 13th Annual Bowl.
