Southern Illinois Salukis (1-2)


Baker, Southern Illinois stun Northwestern 31-24

EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) Nic Baker hit Jacob Garrett with a touchdown pass for the second time in the game to break a tie with 12:28 left in the fourth quarter, and Southern Illinois went on to top Northwestern 31-24 on Saturday.

Garrett caught Baker's toss to cap a 19-play, 74-yard drive to put the Salukis ahead by a touchdown and SIU (1-2) beat a Big Ten opponent for only the second time. A Missouri Valley Conference member, Southern Illinois' other win over a Big Ten foe was against Indiana in 2006 when coach Nick Hill was their quarterback.

"I'm just excited to see it from a different lens as a coach," said Hill, who's from Du Quoin, Illinois about 20 miles north of Southern Illinois' campus in Carbondale. "I just kind of stood back and was able to watch them kind of enjoy it."
