EVANSTON, Ill. (Associated Press) -

Northern Illinois's football team will play Northwestern in 2014, the first matchup between the two teams since 2005.

The schools say the game will be the eighth between the two programs since 1975. It's set for Sept. 6 at Northwestern's Ryan Field.

Northwestern has won 6 of the past seven games in the series. A 1987 matchup ended in a 16-16 tie.

The Wildcats beat the Huskies 38-37 during the 2005 game.
