Eskridge helps Western Michigan rally for 30-27 victory

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) D'Wayne Eskridge ran a kickoff back for a touchdown and capped a big day with a reverse that set up the winning field goal as unbeaten Western Michigan edged Northern Illinois 30-27 on Saturday.

Eskridge, whose 100-yard return gave the Broncos (4-0, 4-0 Mid-American Conference) a 20-17 halftime edge before Northern Illinois retook the lead, ran 27 yards to the NIU 9 that set up Gavin Peddie's field goal with 2:23 remaining. NIU couldn't muster a first down on its final possession.

Eskridge also had a 57-yard reception that led to Skyy Moore's 26-yard receiving touchdown to tie the game at 27-all with 9:12 left. Eskridge finished with 134 yards receiving.
