(WSCR) – While the Nothern Illinois Huskies won their fifth straight, Central Michigan lost their fifth straight. Nothern Illinois came out on top with a dominant 33-7 victory.

DE KALB, Ill. (AP) Chad Spann rushed for three touchdowns and 101 yards while Michael Cklamovski added four field goals in Northern Illinois’ 33-7 Mid-American victory over Central Michigan on Saturday.

The Huskies (6-2, 4-0) scored 30 unanswered points on the way to their fifth straight victory and first over the Chippewas (2-6, 1-4) since 2007.
