John Richardson kicked a 37-yard field goal as time expired Saturday to give Northern Illinois a 39-36 victory against Ohio, snapping a four-game losing streak.

The teams scored two touchdowns apiece in a back-and-forth fourth quarter to arrive at a 36-36 tie with 3 minutes, 38 seconds remaining. Ross Bowers led the Huskies (2-4, 1-1 Mid-American Conference) on a 56-yard drive, and Richardson capped it with his field goal for the win.

Richardson, a Brother Rice alumnus from Orland Park, also kicked a 51-yard field goal late in the first quarter.

Bowers was 23 of 39 for 338 yards and a touchdown for the Huskies. Tre Harbison ran for 113 yards and three touchdowns on 25 carries.

The Huskies’ Corey Lersch blocked the first punt of the game following an Ohio three-and-out, and Adam Buirge returned it for a Northern Illinois touchdown. Ohio answered with three touchdowns for a 21-10 halftime lead.

Harbinson's two touchdown runs in the third quarter gave the Huskies a 22-21 lead going into the wild fourth.

Nathan Rourke threw for 258 yards and two touchdowns for the Bobcats (2-4, 1-1).
