Chandler Harnish breaks 48-year-old NIU mark in victory

Associated Press

DEKALB, Ill. -- Quarterback Chandler Harnish broke a 48-year-old school touchdown record as Northern Illinois snapped a two-game losing streak with a 47-30 victory over Cal Poly on Saturday.

Harnish's two passing touchdowns and two more rushing gave him 67 for his career, besting the old mark of 66 set by George Bork between 1960-63.

The Huskies (2-2) scored on all six first half possessions on the way to a 34-7 halftime lead. The Mustangs (1-3) broke the shutout on Andre Broadous' 2-yard run with 5:39 left in the first half. Cal Poly scored four times in the second half.

Harnish was 18 of 21 for 187 yard passing and rushed 13 times for 118 yards. Tailback Jasmin Hopkins rushed 22 times for 148 yards and two touchdowns for Northern Illinois.

Broadous led Cal Poly with 103 yards on 24 carries.
