Later in the quarter, a 50-yard pass from Santacaterina to Christian Blake led to a 1-yard scoring run from Marcus Childers. While the Aztec star did catch a touchdown pass and had a long kickoff return, NIU's defense limited Penny to 107 yards on 25 carries from scrimmage, well below his 179-yard average in the Aztecs' first four victories. Penny's presence has opened passing windows for quarterbackChristian Chapman, who has completed 66.7 percent of his attempts for 660yards, five scores and one interception.

Jordan Huff led Northern Illinois in rushing with 148 yards.

Penny continued his streak of scoring at least one touchdown in every game this season, courtesy of a 33-yard pass from Chapman off a wheel route. The Huskies are winless in six games against the Aztecs, including in consecutive seasons.

The senior wide receiver set career highs in both receptions, 13, and reception yardage, 160. "We can't lose. We can't even get this close to losing again". In between, the Mid-American Conferenceteam had a bye week so the Huskies are sure to be rested and ready for theirnon-conference finale Saturday.
