Week 4 Top Dawgs

Comments (...) | Add Comments

Big win for Northern Illinois Saturday. There were a lot of things to like (Jordan Lynch shines again) while there were also things to be disappointed about (the defense still hasn't forced a a turnover against a BCS team).

Here NIU's Week 4 top performers, or Top Dawgs.


Jordan Lynch, junior, quarterback

Lynch is sure to be a fixture here. Saturday, he was efficient passing the ball (23 of 35 for 235 yards) and went over 100 yards rushing once again, totaling 134 yards on the ground.


Alan Baxter, senior, defensive end

Baxter finished with six tackles and sacked Kansas quarterback Dayne Crist twice, the last one coming on the Jayhawks' final drive.

Special teams

Tommylee Lewis, senior, kick returner

Lewis helped put the Huskies in decent field position, averaging 25 yards on his three kick returns, with a long of 35.

Last week's winner: Jordan Lynch
