Greetings from Toronto!

Follow tomorrow’s game via The Oracle’s Twitter and Facebook.

Kerry Klecic, Editor-In-Chief of the Oracle, here after a full day of airport delays and braving a snowy drive from Buffalo to Toronto.

It’s awfully cold north of the border, but that won’t be a concern Saturday when the Bulls meet Northern Illinois inside the Rogers Centre — formally known as the SkyDome — at noon in the International Bowl.

I wanted to provide some links and short buildup as I remind you that I’ll probably make my way to the Rogers Centre at 10 a.m. Saturday. I’ll be posting live on Twitter and Facebook throughout the game. We’ll also have a full game recap at usforacle.com once postgame interviews are done.

Both Twitter and Facebook feeds are on the front page of the site as well.

The obvious talking point is Northern Illinois’ rushing attack vs. USF’s defense. NIU junior Chad Spann can reach 1,000 rushing yards this season with 55 against the Bulls, which shouldn’t be a problem considering USF finished the regular season sixth in the Big East in rush defense.

Saturday will be the last game for defensive end George Selvie, easily considered one of the best players in school history. It could also be the last game for his counterpart at end, junior Jason Pierre-Paul, who is getting high early NFL Draft marks of analysts.

Here’s the advances from the St. Petersburg Times and Tampa Tribune, as well as a feature on Northern Illinois kicker Mike Salerno from the Daily Chronicle in DeKalb.

I’ll post a blog before the game with links again to where you can find my live updates. Safe travels and Happy New Year to all!
