N. Illinois wins MAC championship 41-23 over Kent St.

DETROIT (AP) Quarterback Rocky Lombardi ran for three touchdowns and Jay Ducker ran for 146 yards on 29 carries to power Northern Illinois to a 41-23 victory over Kent State in the Mid-American Conference title game on Saturday.

It is the Huskies' (9-4) sixth MAC title in the last 11 years and first since 2018 when it beat Buffalo. Kent State (7-6) was shooting for its first conference championship since winning it in 1972.

"This is historic," said Huskies coach Thomas Hammock whose team was predicted to finish in last place this year after going 0-6 in 2020. "I don't think any team has gone winless the year before and won a championship.
