3rd and 15

Florida State was held to a mere field goal, a spiritual and schematic win for NIU, as the lead was only 17-3 and not 21-3. (They're actually lucky it isn't 28-0, but still.)

On the following kickoff a stupid personal foul, a false start and a couple of bad passes put the Huskies into a desolate 3rd and 15 situation. The play that turned things around was a streaking Akeem Daniels down the sideline, with Lynch finding him for a 55-yard pass. That certainly saved the game. It also opened up Lynch for a 22-yard scramble, and then finding Martel Moore on the underneath route, who redeemed himself after a couple of miscues to bring the score into 17-10.

Game on, dudes.
