NORTHN ILLINOIS 35, BALL ST 23
MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) -- Jordan Lynch accounted for 402 yards and
gave Northern Illinois the lead for good with a 54-yard
touchdown pass to Akeem Daniels, and the Huskies defeated Ball
State 35-23 on Saturday.
Northern Illinois (5-1, 2-0 Mid-American), which has won five
straight after a season-opening loss to Iowa, trailed 23-14
after Keith Wenning's short TD run for the Cardinals (3-3, 1-2)
in the third quarter. But Lynch, who ran for 207 yards on 29
carries, scored on a 12-yard run. With 4:58 to play, the TD pass
to Daniels made it 28-23 Huskies. Lynch then sealed it with a
71-yard run, his third rushing TD, with 3:03 left.
Lynch was 16 of 23 for 195 yards and was not intercepted.
Wenning attempted 71 passes for Ball State, completing 42, for
434 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions. Jamill Smith ran
for 146 yards on just 14 attempts for the Cardinals.
