Huff runs for 185 yards, 2 TDs; N. Illinois beats WMU 35-31

DEKALB, Ill. (AP) Jordan Huff ran for two touchdowns and a career-high 185 yards as Northern Illinois scored a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns to beat Western Michigan 35-31 on Wednesday night.

Huff had a 31-yard touchdown run in the first quarter, and scored from 14 yards out to tie the game 28-28 early in the fourth quarter. The Huskies' Marcus Childers threw a 26-yard touchdown pass to Mitchell Brinkman with 6:20 remaining to cap the scoring.

Northern Illinois (8-3, 6-1 Mid-American Conference) ran out the last five minutes of the game, highlighted by Tre Harbison's 12-yard run on a third-and-10 with about a minute left.

Reece Goddard threw two touchdown passes and ran for another score for Western Michigan (6-5, 4-3). Jarvion Franklin had 115 yards rushing and a touchdown. Tyron Arnett had three catches for 93 yards.

Sutton Smith recovered a Goodard fumble in the second quarter and returned it 58 yards into the end zone to give the Huskies a 21-14 halftime lead.
