Northern Illinois enters play with a record of 8-3. They have plenty to play for on Tuesday. The team sits in a tie in the MAC conference west division with the Toledo Rockets for first place.

Ohio Bobcats enter with a 7-4 record on the year. They cannot catch Bowling Green in the MAC conference east division as they reside in second place two games behind with one left to be played.
