Northern Illinois won it's third consecutive game on Saturday and avenged a loss to the Jayhawks last season by a final score of 30-23. The Huskies would score the game's final 17 points to improve to 3-1 on the year.
The Huskies took a 13-10 lead into the half, but Kansas would opening the scoring with a Jared Sims run from a yard out in the second. They'd add to that lead early in the fourth quarter, as Tyler Patmon would take an interception 54 yards for a touchdown to put the Jayhawks up 23-13, but Ron Doherty failed to convert the extra point after the score.
The Huskies fought back, as Jordan Lynch found Martel Moore for a 65-yard score to cut the Kansas lead to three. They'd add a field goal to draw even, and Leighton Settle would run the ball in from a yard out to put NIU back in front for good.
The Huskies will be in action again next Saturday against Central Michigan. The Chippewas are coming off of a thrilling last second victory against the Iowa Hawkeyes.
