After 3 Quarters, Ball State-27 NIU-27

The #MACtion continues!

Jordan Lynch and the Huskies grabbed a 27-24 lead (their first lead since 3-0) on a fourth down touchdown rush by Cameron Stingily midway through the third period. The score capped a 17-play, 85-yard drive that took more than five and a half minutes. Lynch, on a third and ten, broke a huge tackle in the backfield, and somehow turned a 5-yard loss into a first down run that allowed the drive to continue.

On their next drive the Cardinals countered with a 12 play 80 yard drive of their own. NIU defensive lineman, George Rainey, stuffed a run on third and one at the NIU 2-yard line to force a Ball State field goal - tying the game at 27. Ball State's defense was able to stop NIU on their next drive, forcing a punt with less than two minutes to go.

The Cardinals will start the 4th quarter with a third and four from thier own 49-yard line.
