Northern Illinois carried an impressive 6-1 record into their match-up Saturday against Akron, and with a 20-7 lead at halftime, the Huskies seem content on grabbing another win to stay atop the MAC West standings.

Lynch was responsible for both Huskies touchdowns, tossing a nine-yard pass to Martel Moore in the first quarter, before adding another with his feet in the second. Kicker Mathew Sims added a field goal in both the first and second quarters to give the Huskies six more points.

As for the Zips, after early struggles, they were able to put up seven points on the board late in the second quarter. Akron’s one touchdown came on a four-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Dalton Williams to Jerrod Dillard, which capped a nine-play, 75-yard drive.
