NIU 2-minute drill

On the offensive: Jordan Lynch insists he's not a running quarterback, and while his arm was certainly on display, he ran for four touchdowns in Saturday's 63-19 blowout of Massachusetts. He has 12 rushing scored this season, 23 in his distinguished career.

Getting defensive: Defensive tackle Ken Bishop picked off a UMass pass, the first interception of his career. He really wanted to score, picking the ball off at the UMass 20 and rumbling all the way to the six. His coach, Rod Carey, said Bishop is improving weekly because of his work in practice.

The number: 354. The Huskies piled up a huge total on the ground Saturday, with Lynch leading the way with 119 net yards on 17 carries.

They're still talking about: How easy the Northern Illinois offense made it look, again, on Saturday.

Looking ahead: Northern Illinois doesn't play next Saturday, but hosts Ball State Wednesday, Nov. 13.
