LIGHTNING STOPS HUSKIES, CARDINALS DON'T. At halftime of a game delayed nearly an hour by local lightning, host Ball State was in a 14-14 tie with Northern Illinois. The second half belonged to Garrett Wolfe, who set a school rushing record despite having two long touchdown runs nullified by penalties. Final score 40-28, with Ball State picking up two touchdowns late in the game. Northern Illinois is now promoting tailback Garrett Wolfe and offensive tackle Doug Free for national performance awards.
It was not a good day to be a football fan in Indiana. Wisconsin used a sneak air attack to score the first 52 points of their game at Bloomington and held off Indiana's 17 point run at the end.
