Northern Illinois coach Rod Carey thinks Huskies quarterback Jordan Lynch deserves to be mentioned in Heisman Trophy talk.
"If Jordan isn't in the conversation for the Heisman I don't know what people are watching, they were asleep," Carey said. "In my estimation that trophy goes to the best player in the nation and with the performance he had tonight, he dang sure should be in that conversation."
Playing in front of a national television audience, Lynch threw two touchdown passes and ran for two scores to help No. 20 Northern Illinois beat Ball State 48-27 on Wednesday night.
"I feel like I'm improving every week," Lynch said. "I still think the best is yet to come."
