The 1957 Northern Illinois Huskies football team represented Northern Illinois University in the 1957 NCAA College Division football season. The Huskies competed in the Interstate Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (IIAC). They were led by second-year head coach Howard Fletcher and played their home games at the 5,500-seat Glidden Field, located on the east end of campus.
