Northern Illinois loses to Marshall 52-23 in Boca Raton Bowl

BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) The Boca Raton Bowl had been over for less than an hour, and Northern Illinois coach Rod Carey was already thinking about how his team would bounce back.

The Huskies couldn't stop the passing combination of Rakeem Cato to Tommy Shuler and lost Tuesday to Marshall, 52-23.

"This leaves a really bad taste in our mouth," Carey said. "What we came here to do, we did not get done. That will stick with us here, and we're going to have use that going into next year."
