Northern Illinois 45, UB 21

William Andrews rushed for 113 yards and returned a kickoff 95 yards for a score as Northern Illinois defeated UB, 45-21, in a Mid-American Conference battle Saturday night before 12,915 fans in UB Stadium.

The Huskies jumped out to a 24-0 halftime lead and put the game out of reach when Andrews took the kickoff to start the second half and went 95 yards up the right sideline to give NIU a commanding 31-0 lead.

The Bulls would score 21 second-half points to break out of their offensive swoon-they hadn't scored a touchdown in more than 10 quarters when flanker Drew Haddad hauled in a two-yard touchdown pass from Joe Freedy-to make the game closer.

Haddad finished the game with eight receptions for 100 yards, the third straight game in which he has cracked the century mark in receiving yards and the 13th time in his career. Fullback Josh Roth led the Bulls' rushing game with 11 carries for 47 yards and a touchdown, while tailback Derrick Gordon, seeing his first action of the season, had 15 carries for 46 yards.
