Northern Illinois undefeated after defeating Ball State

By Alejandro Freixes, CCNN Head Writer

Northern Illinois continues to shine, with a 10-0 record after beating Ball State 48-27. Huskies quarterback Jordan Lynch displayed some Heisman-worthy play, and coach Rod Carey believes “If Jordan isn’t in the conversation for the Heisman, I don’t know what people are watching; they were asleep. In my estimation that trophy goes to the best player in the nation, and with the performance he had tonight, he dang sure should be in that conversation.” Lynch threw two touchdown passes, ran for two scores, was 26-of-32 for 345 yards, and ran for 123 yards on 20 carries. Ball State put up a tough fight as well, as Keith Wenning was 35-of-49 for 324 yards, Jahwan Edwards ran for 156 yards and a score, and Willie Snead had 12 catches for 121 yards. The Cardinals ended their seven-game winning streak tonight, after a very tough match.
