Northern Illinois is a great team this year. But 50-14? I am bewildered. I have no idea where to begin. I suppose I'll start with this:

Northern Illinois-Rushing: 228 YDS
Akron-Total Offense: 257 YDS

The biggest cheer in the stadium came during a replay of Domenik Hixon's game-winning TD catch from the MAC Championship 5 years ago.

The offense was terrible. The defense was terrible. The only good thing during that game yesterday was the soft pretzel I bought at halftime. Oh, and:

Zack Campbell-7 Punts, 255 YDS
Alex Allen-14 CAR, 99 YDS, 2 TD

The only two Akron touchdowns came from a muffed punt on the 11 yard line (capped by a 1 yard run from Allen), and a drive consisting of three runs from Allen (74, 0, 1). Here are the rest of the drives:

6 plays, 16 yards, punt
3 plays, 6 yards, punt
7 plays, 26 yards, punt
3 plays, 8 yards, punt
1 play, 0 yards, interception
6 plays, 41 yards, missed field goal
3 plays, 3 yards, punt
7 plays, 7 yards, punt
7 plays, 37 yards, punt
5 plays, 18 yards, interception

But we have soccer.
