Harnish named MAC West Offensive Player of the Week

Northern Illinois quarterback Chandler Harnish on Monday was named the Mid-American Conference West Division Offensive Player of the Week for the fourth time this season by the league office.

It's the second time in as many weeks Harnish has been awarded. This one came after the senior passed for 338 yards and two touchdowns and ran for an additional 181 yards and a touchdown. His 519 total yards broke the previous school record of 477 that Phil Horvath set in 2005 and were the third-highest total record in college football this season.

Harnish also came only 19 rushing yards shy of throwing and running for 200 for the second time this season.

Will NIU football win the MAC this season?
