NIU wins fifth straight

After their 63 point offensive explosion last week against Toledo, the Huskies continued their offensive success last night beating Bowling Green 45-14.

Offense seems to be the storyline of the MAC the past two weeks and last night was no different. Quarterback Chandler Harnish threw for 294 yards and ran for another 150 more, combining for 444 of the teams 623 yards of total offense. The Huskies ended the game with 283 yards on the ground.

Northern Illinois is tied with Toledo for the lead in the MAC (we imagine fans of lots of points are begging for a rematch between the two) and will finish the season against 6-4 Ball State and 5-4 Eastern Michigan.
