NIU Huskies run past Toledo Rockets 63-60, take MAC West lead

via 30fps.mocksession.com

It was the highest scoring game (in regulation) in MAC regular season history.

The Northern Illinois Huskies started off the game with two touchdown returns by TommyLee Lewis of 100 and 95 yds, the top two returns in Glass Bowl history.

The Huskies and Rockets combined for a total 1,122 yds with the Rockets slightly ahead 589-532 because of all the craziness that happened on special teams.

Chandler Harnish threw for 265 yds and 6 (SIX!) TDs and rushed for 133 yds as well. Nathan Palmer was a stud catching 4 balls for 120 yds and 3 touchdowns.

Toledo QB Austin Dantin threw for 322 yds and 5 TDs on his own, all to WR Eric Page.

It was back and forth all game long, with the Huskies able to run down the clock at the end with Perez Ashford grabbing a 4 yd reception. Kickoffs were an issue all game long, but the Huskies were able to kick it deep on the final possession, not allowing the Toledo offense to even get a chance at a field goal.

NIU improves their all-time record against Toledo to 10-29, 4-11 since NIU re-joined the MAC in 1997.

It's only the third win by Northern Illinois at Toledo in the Glass Bowl ever. The last win @ the Glass Bowl for the Huskies was in 2005 when they also made the MAC Championship. If the Huskies can win their next three games, they'll be there again.
