The Northern Illinois Huskies scored a touchdown in the third quarter, pushing their advantage to 18-6 over the East Michigan Eagles.
East Michigan began the second half with the ball, but failed to score after a 7 play, 23 yard drive. When the Huskies could do nothing with their first second half possession, the Eagles responded by driving 57 yards and setting up a 23-yard field goal from Kody Fulkerson, trimming the NIU lead to 12-6.
On the ensuing NIU possession, Chandler Harnish took a 3rd and 1 rush and gashed through the Eagles defense for a 68 yard touchdown run and a 18-6 lead. NIU subsequently failed their two-point conversion.
With the 4th quarter underway, the Huskies will look to hold onto their 12-point lead and finish the season with a seventh straight win.
