N. Illinois, Wyoming agree to 2015, 2016 games

Northern Illinois University says it has agreed to play football games against Wyoming in 2015 and 2016.

Northern Illinois said Wednesday that it will host the Cowboys on Sept. 26, 2015. The teams will open the 2016 season with a game in Laramie, Wyo., on Sept. 3.

Huskies Athletic Director Jeff Compher called the games good matchups against a team from a quality conference. Wyoming plays in the Mountain West.

The 2015 game will be the first-ever meeting between the two teams.
