Northern Illinois at Kent State

Stingily leads NIU to 38-24 win over Kent St.


  •  

KENT, Ohio (AP) Cameron Stingily ran for a career-high 266 yards and two scores as Northern Illinois remained undefeated with a 38-24 win over Kent State on Saturday.

Northern Illinois (5-0, 1-0 Mid-American) trailed 24-21 in the third quarter but proceeded to score 17 unanswered points, beginning with a 22-yard touchdown run by James Spencer midway through the quarter. Spencer then scored on an 11-yard touchdown pass from Jordan Lynch on the Huskies' following possession. Northern Illinois finished with 698 yards of total offense, 454 yards rushing.

Kent State (2-4, 1-2) took the lead early in the third with a 28-yard touchdown pass from Colin Reardon to Tyshon Goode but failed to score after that.

The game was a rematch of last season's conference title game, a 44-37 double-overtime win by Northern Illinois that helped propel the Huskies to an Orange Bowl berth.
