Week's Achievements: Chandler Harnish provided a record-setting performance Saturday against Western Michigan, rushing for a career-best 229 yards and passing for 203 yards in a 51-22 rout of then Broncos. The Bluffton, Ind., native became the first player in the MAC to rush for 200 yards this season and only the second quarterback to do so in 2011. Additionally, Harnish became the 11th quarterback in NCAA FBS history to pass and rush for 200 yards in the same game. The senior’s figures also stand as the third-best rushing performance by a Huskie quarterback. As a whole, he accounted for 432 of the Huskies’ 697 yards of total offense in the game. Week's Achievements: Courtney Oldenburg wrapped up the 2011 regular season with a stellar performance at the Bradley Classic in Peoria, Ill. The junior, despite only finishing 54th in the 200-plus runner field, crossed the finish line at a time of 22:42.09, which ranks as the 12th fastest 6K run in NIU cross country history. Her efforts helped the Huskies claim 14th place in the 21 team field that included Missouri, Saint Louis and Butler.
