UMass vs. Northern Illinois score: Huskies rolling, lead Minutemen 14-0

Things just don't get easier when mired in a winless college football season. The 0-8 Minutemen are being hosed by MAC-leading Northern Illinois, 14-0. The Huskies have scored through the air and on the ground, and have torched the UMass defense for 190 total yards in the first quarter.

Jordan Lynch started the Huskies off with a 9-yard touchdown strike to Martel Moore, and handed off to Keith Harris Jr. for a 1-yard score to make it 14-0. Lynch is 8-of-9 through the air for 98 yards and the one score, while UMass helmsman Mike Wegzyn has totaled just 33 yards on 11 attempts.

UMass remains the only team in the Mid-American Conference without a win, while the Huskies are one of two teams in the conference with only one loss. The Huskies lead the West division with a 5-0 record in conference play and an 8-1 record overall.
