NIU QB Jordan Lynch breaks single-game FBS QB rushing record

Before the season got underway, Northern Illinois University launched a Heisman campaign for their QB Jordan Lynch after coming of a year in 2012 where the dynamic QB led the Huskies of the MAC to an Orange Bowl appearance.

Some people believe that campaigns mean nothing in the end, it’s the play on the field that gets you an invite to New York. It also helps to be a record-breaker, something Lynch accomplished today.

In the game against Central Michigan, a 38-17 victory, Lynch broke the FBS single-game rushing record for a quarterback with an astonishing 316 yards on the ground on 32 carries and three touchdowns. Lynch scored on runs of five, one and three yards.

In addition to the tremendous feat, Lynch was also 20-of-30 for 155 yards and a touchdown through the air.

But, it was his legs once again that helped guide the Huskies to another victory, which pushes them to 7-0 on the year as they aim to prove that they deserve another shot at BCS glory after being routed in that Orange Bowl by Florida State.
