NIU 35, Ball State 23: Players of the Game

New, 2 comments

Northern Illinois players of the game for the 35-23 victory over Ball State.

Mike DiNovo-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Offense

Hmm 29 carries for 207 yds and 3 TDs. Was it our quarterback Jordan Lynch? Why yes it was. Add in 195 yds and a TD pass and you've got yourself the likely MAC offensive player of the week. Good job Jordan!

Honorable mention to RB/WR Akeem Daniels who had 5 catches for 78 yds including the 58 yarder which broke the game wide open.

Defense

Kudos to the defensive line for knocking down all sorts of balls at the line of scrimmage. Jimmie Ward continued to do some damage and had one of the two picks (the other by Michael Santacaterina).

Open for nominations.

Special Teams

Tough one, but TommyLee Lewis did a good job returning kicks and his longest was 43 yds. Tough fumble though.
