CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- Tirrell Rennie had two touchdowns and broke the school record for consecutive passes without an interception as Northern Iowa beat Southern Illinois 17-10 Saturday.

Rennie hit Terrell Sinkfield for an 18-yard touchdown pass to tie the game 7-7 in the second quarter, then scored on a 1-yard run in the third quarter to put the Panthers (6-1, 5-0 Missouri Valley) up 17-7. Rennie completed 14 of 23 passes for 167 yards and no interceptions. He has not thrown an interception in his last 146 attempts -- dating back to last season -- breaking the mark of 138 set by Eric Sanders in 2007.

Southern Illinois (2-5, 1-4) scored first on a 7-yard pass from Kory Faulkner to MyCole Pruitt. It also got a 30-yard field goal from Jackson MacLachan in the fourth quarter -- the first points Northern Iowa has allowed in the second half in its last four games.
