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

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

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.
