  Don Williams ran for 166 yards, including a 99-yard run for a second-quarter touchdown, and Northern Iowa used its defense to dominate Western Illinois, 41-3 Saturday in the season finale for both schools. The Panthers denied Western Michigan any kind of a running game, holding the Leathernecks to minus-46 yards on the ground. Northern Iowa set a school record with 12 sacks and picked off three passes, including a 46-yard pick-six by Austin Evans in the third quarter. After trading field goals Northern Iowa broke the game open when Williams found a seam up the middle and raced 99 yards for the score, the longest run for a touchdown by a Panthers since Arnold Paulsen ran 98 yards against Augustana in 1951, Terrance Kamara carried 11 times for 40 yards and a touchdown for Northern Iowa (6-5, 4-4 Missouri Valley). Theo Day completed 14 of 23 passes for 241 yards and a touchdown to Sam Schnee. Connor Sampson was 29 of 39 for 163 yards for Western Illinois (2-9, 2-6). - AP College Football

Day was 14-of-26 passing for 103 yards and threw two interceptions and Bradrick Shaw had 24 carries for 124 yards for Northern Iowa (5-3, 3-2 Missouri Valley Conference), ranked No. 17 in the FCS coaches poll. Matthew Cook made a 31-yard field goal as time expired in the first half to trim UNI's deficit to 13-6 with an eight-play, 75-yard drive that culminated when Day hit Sam Schnee for a 19-yard touchdown to make it a tie game with 10:58 left in the third quarter.

Third-ranked Southern Illinois went back in front when Nico Gualdoni kicked a 33-yard field goal less than two minutes later. The Panthers answered immediately, going 79 yards in 14 plays to take the lead for good when Day connected with Kyle Fourtenbary for a 10-yard TD to make it 20-13 heading into the fourth. Nic Baker completed 27 of 42 passes for 306 yards and a touchdown but threw a pair of fourth-quarter interceptions for Southern Illinois (6-2, 4-1).
