Northern Illinois swept the MAC West offensive and defensive player of the week awards when they were announced Monday morning.

Wide receiver Tommylee Lewis was named the division’s offensive player of the week after catching a career-high nine passes for 56 yards, and running for 104 yards on four carries in Saturday’s 45-35 win at Idaho. It was also Lewis’ first-career 100-yard rushing game.

Bishop had a career-high eight tackles, a tackle for loss and a fumble recovery.
