Northern Illinois Univ. tonight will honor Diesel, its live husky mascot, during Senior Day celebrations as the canine "will retire after nine years on the sideline." NIU AD Sean Frazier said that Diesel will still "be welcomed at NIU games and events as the Huskies' 'mascot emeritus.'" NIU during the first quarter of the game "will introduce its new husky, 'Mission'" (CBSSPORTS.com, 11/26).
