• Northern Illinois quarterback Chandler Harnish, a senior from Bluffton, Ind., became only the 10th player in FBS history to both run and pass for 200 yards in the same game. Harnish had 203 yards on 14-for-27 passing and ran for 229 on 14 attempts in a 51-22 rout of Western Michigan on Saturday. Harnish only played three quarters and ran for 163 yards in the third quarter alone.

Among the other players who accomplished the rare feat: former Texas quarterback Vince Young against Oklahoma State in 2005; ex-West Virginia star Pat White against Pittsburgh in 2006; and Michigan's Denard Robinson against both Notre Dame and Indiana last season.
