Recap: Northern Ill vs. Massachusetts

DeKalb, IL (Sports Network) - Jordan Lynch was spectacular, passing for 191 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for 157 yards and a touchdown, as he led the Northern Illinois Huskies to a 63-0 Mid-American Conference demolition of the Massachusetts Minutemen at Huskies Stadium

The Huskies (9-1, 6-0 MAC) won their 20th consecutive home game, and did so convincingly. Lynch was 15-of-19 in the air and did all his rushing on 15 attempts. Lynch was subbed out midway through the third quarter and Matt McIntosh took his place. McIntosh was 4-of-6 for 43 yards and one touchdown.

While Lynch led the Huskies in rushing, Akeem Daniels had a rushing score while both McIntosh and Keith Harris Jr. each had a pair of rushing scores.

Daniels, Martel Moore, and Angelo Sebastiano each had a receiving touchdown. Tommylee Lewis caught six balls for 86 yards and Juwan Bresacin caught four balls for 82 yards but neither scored.

The Minutemen (0-9, 0-5 Mid-American Conference) are still in search for their first win of the season. They turned the ball over three times and were unable to score a single point against the Huskies.

Mike Wegzyn was 16-of-28 for 137 yards and no touchdowns while Michael Cox rushed for 81 yards on 25 attempts without a score. Rob Blanchflower had four receptions for 55 yards.

Northern Illinois got things going early leading 14-0 at the end of the first quarter after Lynch hit Moore for a nine-yard touchdown pass and Harris ran in a score from one yard out.

The Huskie offense kept it going in the second quarter as Lynch threw a 17-yard touchdown pass to Daniels as well as taking in a 57-yard run for a touchdown. The Northern Illinois lead kept growing with Harris scoring his second touchdown of the day on a two-yard run to finish off an eight-play, 80-yard drive. Northern Illinois led 35-0 at the half.

The Huskies continued their destruction of Massachusetts in the second half starting off with an 11-play, 75-yard drive that ended in a 17-yard touchdown run by Daniels.

With the Huskies leading by so much, Lynch was taken out and McIntosh came in to relieve him. McIntosh ran for a one-yard touchdown, threw a six-yard touchdown pass to Sebastiano, and then ran for a seven-yard touchdown as Northern Illinois won 63-0.

Northern Illinois racked up 610 yards of total offense to just 267 by the UMass.
