The Northern Illinois Huskies boast a terrific offense, led by its 7th ranked rushing attack.

Quarterback Chandler Harnish is the team’s second leading rusher with 764 yards and five scores. Harnish had decent numbers through the air as well, throwing for 2,230 yards, 20 touchdowns and five interceptions. Their running game is what carried them though.
