In a non-surprise selection NIU will be headed across the border to the International Bowl in Toronto, Canada.

The Huskies (7-5, 5-3 MAC) will face South Florida (7-4, 3-4 Big East) out of the Big East, so they will draw a BCS conference school. If you plan on going, you might want to expedite your passport.
