Northern Illinois rallies for 32-27 win over No. 20 Toledo
TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) Freshman quarterback Ryan Graham led Northern Illinois on two fourth-quarter scoring drives, and the Huskies rallied to beat No. 20 Toledo 32-27 on Tuesday night.
Joel Bouagnon's 2-yard touchdown with 1:59 remaining lifted the Huskies (6-3, 4-1 Mid-American Conference) to their sixth consecutive victory against the Rockets (7-1, 4-1). Bouagnon rushed for 87 yards on 26 carries.
Graham entered midway through the second quarter after Drew Hare suffered a leg injury. Hare spent the second half on the sideline in crutches, and Graham was 9 for 12 for 132 yards and ran for 41 more yards.
The Huskies closed to 27-25 on Kenny Golladay's diving 7-yard touchdown reception in the fourth.
Toledo's Kareem Hunt rushed for 140 yards and two touchdowns. His 1-yard score with 4:23 left in the third quarter gave the Rockets a 24-16 lead.
