Western Michigan vs. Northern Illinois

DeKALB, IL (WTVB) - Jordan  Lynch rushed for  a whopping 321 yards with three touchdowns as No. 18 Northern  Illinois  closed out a perfect  regular season with a 33-14 win over Western Michigan on Tuesday. A dark horse Heisman candidate, Lynch carried the ball  27 times  and broke  his own  NCAA  FBS record  for rushing  yards by  a quarterback,  and also  went 5-for-17  for 39  yards and  a touchdown  for the Huskies  (12-0, 8-0  MAC), who clinched the West Division and will play either Bowling  Green or Buffalo  in the MAC championship game on Dec. 6.

NIU has won 25  straight conference games and 26 straight games at home, both of which are the  nation's  longest. Dareyon Chance  and Antoin  Scriven each had a rushing touchdown for the Broncos (1-11, 1-7), who closed out their first season under P.J. Fleck with three straight losses.
