Utah State 21, NIU 14 ; FINAL
Jordan Lynch and the Northern Illinois Huskies (12-2) were unable to be victorious, as Joey DeMartino and the Utah State Aggies (9-5) came away with a 21-14 win in the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl.
DeMartino rushed for 143 yards and a touchdown in the winning effort. His stellar day was probably made more special by the fact that he was playing in his hometown.
Jordan Lynch threw for 216 yards and rushed for 39 in the defeat. Utah State defended him essentially better than any other team that he's faced this season.
