Northern Illinois Vs. Arkansas State Score Update: Huskies Lead 21-13 At Halftime

After falling behind 13-0, the Northern Illinois offense got in gear and reeled off 21 unanswered points, including a touchdown in the waning seconds of the second quarter, and the Huskies lead by eight, 21-13, at the break.

Not even an injury to quarterback Chandler Harnish could stall NIU; reserve QB Jordan Lynch was 4-4 for 64 yards in relief and lead the team on one of its touchdown drives. Harnish eventually returned to the field and figures to continue playing in the second half.
