HW has the EIU postgame press conference and an instant reaction to the game.

NIUTube/all-access (which one are they calling it?) has a highlight package from the game on Saturday.

ESPN has 32 highlight videos from this game. You can watch the game another time here if you so choose to.

My favorite play of the game was this Cam Stingily 46-yarder where he hit-sticks a couple defenders on his way to pay dirt.
