ESPN has obtained Northern Illinois' presentation packet for leagues considering expansion. It highlights the football program's MAC-record eight consecutive bowl games and three league titles since 2011. There are charts comparing NIU with other MAC programs in on-field success, academic success, bowl TV ratings and local TV market size. NIU didn't make the first cut in the Big 12's expansion process but could be a candidate for the American Athletic Conference if the league loses members to the Big 12.
