VIDEO: Northern Illinois reacts to Orange Bowl bid

Good video here of NIU reacting to the news that they'll be heading to the Orange Bowl, and playing in the program's first ever BCS bowl game against Florida State.

The Huskies took care of business all season, only losing their season opener to Iowa by one point before rattling off 12 straight wins and winning the MAC title in double OT.

You can sense the excitement that this program has under newly appointed head coach Rod Carey. Notice the staff and players throwing oranges to everyone at the end of the clip.
