DEKALB, Ill. -- — Sophomore quarterback Carter Bradley threw for 432 yards and three touchdowns and Toledo beat Northern Illinois 41-24 on Saturday.
Toledo (3-2, 3-2 Mid-American Conference) broke the game in open in the fourth quarter after the two played to a 17-all tie in the first half and a scoreless third quarter.
Thomas Cluckey's 22-yard field goal with 11:31 left to play ended an 11-play, 51-yard drive. Northern Illinois, now winless in five games, punted on its following drive.
That set up the Rockets for a seven-play, 80-yard drive that ended with Bradley throwing a 15-yard touchdown pass to Ronnie Blackmon with 4:48 left. After the Huskies turned it over on downs, Micah Kelly ran for a 25-yard touchdown run to put it out of reach.
In what was Bradley's third-career start, he completed 29 of 44 passes with a pair of interceptions, one of which was tipped near the line of scrimmage.
