Northern Illinois QB Lynch breaks own rushing mark

Northern Illinois’ Jordan Lynch has broken his own single-season

record for yards rushing by a quarterback in major college

football.

Lynch surpassed his total from last season – 1,815 yards rushing

– in the third quarter of the Mid-American Conference championship

game Friday night against Bowling Green.

Former Michigan standout Denard Robinson had the record for

yards rushing by a quarterback with 1,702 yards in 2010 before

Lynch surpassed that total last season.
