Lynch has been one of the nation's best mobile quarterbacks.
Week 9 Matchup: vs. Eastern Michigan (1-6), Oct. 26, 3:30 p.m. ET on ESPN3
Quarterback Jordan Lynch is coming off a record-setting performance.
In the Huskies' 38-17 win over Central Michigan, the senior rushed for 316 yards and three touchdowns. In the process, he set the FBS record for rushing yards by a quarterback.
It’s just the latest highlight in a season packed full of them.
Through seven games, Lynch has thrown for 1,488 yards, 14 touchdowns and five interceptions on 61.3 percent passing for a quarterback rating of 133.0. He’s added another 932 yards and seven scores on the ground.
Against the Eagles, expect Lynch’s success to continue.
Entering this weekend, Eastern Michigan’s defense ranks among the nation’s worst. The unit is No. 122 in scoring defense (42.3 PPGA), No. 114 in total defense (475.0 YPGA), No. 118 against the run (246.3 YPGA) and No. 61 against the pass (228.7 YPGA).
Did we mention that the Eagles have conceded 50 points or more in three of their last four games?
Lynch should have no problem improving Northern Illinois to 8-0, and it'll be a little closer to clinching its second straight at-large berth into a BCS bowl.
