Up, 14-3, in the second quarter, the Huskies (1-1) put together a 13-play, 80-yard touchdown drive that included three third-down conversions. On a third-and-15, Daniel Santacaterina found D.J. Brown for 15 and a first. They scored on a third-and-8 from the EIU 18 when Santacaterina found Christian Blake.
Then, the NIU defense, dominating all day, forced Mitch Kimble to throw an interception to Mykelti Williams, who took it to the Eastern 30.
Five plays later, Marcus Jones plunged into the end zone and the Huskies were up, 28-3.
