    Mobile, AL (Sports Network) - Chandler Harnish threw two touchdowns and Northern Illinois shook off a slow start to take down Arkansas State, 38-20, in the GoDaddy.com Bowl.

    Harnish limped off the field early in the second quarter, but backup Jordan Lynch led a scoring drive as the senior recovered.

    Lynch's go-ahead touchdown run was part of 31 straight points scored by the Mid-American Conference-champion Huskies (11-3), who forced five turnovers to finish the season on a nine-game winning streak.

    Harnish returned and finished with 280 yards on 18-of-37 passes, while Martel Moore hauled in eight passes for 225 yards and a score in the victory.

    Arkansas State (10-3), which ran off nine straight wins to take the Sun Belt Conference, could not overcame its giveaways, three of which coming on interceptions thrown by Ryan Aplin.
