Northern Illinois 45, Idaho 35
MOSCOW, Idaho -- Jordan Lynch threw for three touchdowns and ran for two more as heavily-favored Northern Illinois held off Idaho 45-35 on Saturday.
The Vandals (0-3), outscored 82-16 in their first two games, twice led the Huskies (2-0) by two touchdowns in the first half and tied the game at 35 in the opening minute of the fourth quarter on James Baker's second touchdown.
Lynch had 154 yards for his fifteenth career 100-yard game, including a 61-yard scoring burst to make it 35-28, but it was his third TD pass that finally did in the Vandals. After a 49-yard field goal by Matthew Sims broke the last tie, Lynch found Luke Eakes for a 16-yard score.

Rutgers 28, Eastern Michigan 10
PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Paul James ran for 192 yards and three touchdowns and Rutgers defeated Eastern Michigan 28-10 on Saturday when the Scarlet Knights honored the paralyzed Eric LeGrand by retiring his No. 52 jersey.
It marked the first time in the 144-year history of the birthplace of college football that the university retired the number of a football player and this one was clearly loved by all in attendance.
James made sure everyone went home happy, scoring on runs of 13, 55 and 52 yards as the Scarlet Knights (2-1) won their second straight and handed Eastern Michigan its second consecutive loss.
Quron Pratt returned a kickoff 99 yards for the Scarlet Knights, who lost starting quarterback Gary Nova to an undisclosed injury after their first series.
North Texas 34, Ball State 27
DENTON, Texas -- Derek Thompson threw for 274 yards and rushed 72 yards to lead North Texas to a 34-27 come-from-behind win over Ball State Saturday.
North Texas (1-1) struggled early as Ball State (2-1) sprinted to a 20-3 lead in the first quarter.
Ball State combined offense and defense to get out front as Keith Wenning tossed a 2-yard touchdown pass to Willie Snead, Horactio Banks added a 77-yard touchdown run and Brian Jones scooped up a fumble, returning it 3 yards for another score.
The Mean Green relied on the foot of Zack Paul to keep them in the game as he made field goals of 48, 22, 47 and 19 yards.
North Texas first touchdown came late in the first half when Thompson hit Brelan Chancellor on a 25-yard pass. The Mean Green took the lead when Thompson scored on a 26-yard run with 9:47 left in the game.
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Nate Sudfeld threw for 335 yards and two touchdowns and Cody Latimer had a career-high 137 yards receiving Saturday as Indiana pulled away in the second half for a 42-10 victory over Bowling Green.
Sudfeld's 33-yard touchdown pass to Latimer with 10:11 left in the third quarter stretched the lead to 18 and allowed the Hoosiers (2-1) to coast the rest of the way. After giving up seven scores in nine possessions last week in a 41-35 loss to Navy, Indiana finished Saturday's game having allowed just three points in 11 defensive series.
The Hoosiers compiled 601 yards of total offense and ended the day on a 35-0 run. Bowling Green (2-1) headed into Memorial Stadium seeking its first 3-0 start since 2003, but a normally reliable defense saw more than it could handle.
Indiana's Tevin Coleman ran 19 times for 130 yards and two touchdowns.
Toledo 33, Eastern Washington 21
TOLEDO -- David Fluellen rushed for 143 yards and two touchdowns as Toledo outlasted Eastern Washington 33-21 on Saturday night.
Toledo's powerful ground game eased the burden on freshman quarterback Logan Woodside, who took over when starter Terrance Owens injured his knee early in the second quarter.
Cassius McDowell added 89 yards on 10 carries as the Rockets (1-2) bulled their way to 325 yards on the ground. Most of Woodside's 185 yards came on an 81-yard score to Bernard Reedy near the end of the third quarter, giving Toledo a 23-14 lead. He finished the game 14-of-24.
The Eagles (2-1) responded as Vernon Adams hit Cooper Kupp for his third touchdown pass, closing the lead to 23-21 with 14:55 left. However, Toledo answered with a 12-play, 88-yard scoring drive. A late Jermiah Detmer field goal iced the game.
