Oddsmakers didn't see a huge difference between Army and Northern Illinois, but the Huskies have looked better than a three point favorite for most of the first half. Northern Illinois have taken the game into the halftime break with a 28-19 lead.
Army received the ball to start the game, and they didn't surprise anyone by coming out running the football. Raymond Maples has already run for 90-yards and a score, and he's been complimented well by Larry Dixon. Dixon goes into halftime with 71-yards on the ground and two touchdowns.
The Huskies first half can be summed up by just looking at one player's line. Quarterback Jordan Lynch has completed six of eight for 164-yards and a pair of touchdowns, and he's also chipped in with 109-yards on the ground. The bulk of his rushing came on an 88-yard touchdown run.
The Black Knights got the ball to start the game, so Northern Illinois will receive to start the second half.
