There’s no question that Jordan Lynch is the engine that drives the Northern Illinois football team.
A Heisman Trophy candidate, Lynch has put together back-to-back outstanding seasons helping the Huskies go 24-2 overall in that span.
Northern Illinois, 12-0 this season, faces Bowling Green, 9-3, in the Mid-American Conference championship game Friday at Detroit’s Ford Field. Kickoff is at 8 p.m.
It’s the fourth straight year NIU has played in the MAC championship game. In the last four seasons, the Huskies went 31-1 in the MAC and is 46-8 overall. NIU is looking for its third straight MAC title on Friday.
In the 26 games over the last two years, Lynch has rushed for 3,590 yards and 39 touchdowns, and is 449-of-723 passing for 5,595 yards with 47 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.

The boundary cornerback is the loneliest player on the football field.
He’s out on an island in the secondary, usually matched against the opposition’s top receiver.
While some would shy away from the stress, Cameron Truss thrives on the demands of the position.
Truss is a fifth-year senior for the Bowling Green State University football team who has made 42 starts in his Falcon career.
‘‘There is a lot of pressure being there, but it’s a challenge and I love competing,’’ Truss said. ‘‘I love being there on the island, and knowing that the coaches have faith in you.’’

CLEVELAND — Led by three first-team selections, a total of 10 Bowling Green State University football players have earned All-Mid-American Conference honors.
David ‘Chief’ Kekuewa (center), Dominic Flewellyn (left guard), and Jerry ‘BooBoo’ Gates (safety), are BG's first-team selections. Gates is a repeat first-team pick.
Kekuewa, a senior captain, has anchored an offensive line which has led one of the top offensive units in the MAC. Kekuewa is in his second season with the Falcons having started all 25 games since arriving on campus. The Falcons have seen a huge increase in the rushing game in each of his two seasons. BG has averaged 180.4 rushing yards per game during his two seasons, but is averaging 209.7 yards per game rushing this season.

In 2012, Bowling Green was satisfied with having a winning record and getting to a bowl game.
This year, the football Falcons want more.
BG, 9-3 overall, faces Northern Illinois, 12-0 and No. 16 in the AP poll, in the Mid-American Conference championship game Friday. Kickoff is at 8 p.m. at Detroit's Ford Field.
Last season, the Falcons lost to Kent State in the next-to-last game of the regular season, finishing 8-5 overall.
''Last year when we played Kent State we were just enjoying the moment. We were just happy to be in that game, not really caring if we won or lost, just happy to be there,'' BG's Alex Bayer, a fifth-year senior, said.
It was different this season, as BG went into the Buffalo game last Friday, ready to take the next step. The Falcons beat the Bulls, 24-7 to win the MAC East and advance to the title game. BG finished 7-1 in the MAC.
