Moore's 208 yards are the eighth most in a single game in program history. He now has 91 receptions, 1,256 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns this season. All rank in the top-10 of the Western Michigan single-season receiving records. Tuesday was Moore's eighth 100-yard performance of the season, and fifth game with 10 or more receptions.
Quarterback Kaleb Eleby finished 21-for-26 for 338 yards and five touchdowns. He reached 3,000 passing yards on the season, and has back-to-back 300-yard games. Running back Sean Tyler reached a milestone of his own as he got to the 1,000 yard mark for the season on his way to 115 yards on 17 attempts and a touchdown.
Jaylen Hall and Corey Crooms each had 63 receiving yards, and senior tight end Brett Borske scored his first touchdown of the season in front of friends and family from nearby Naperville, Ill.
Defensively, Western Michigan (7-5, 4-4 MAC) limited Northern Illinois (8-4, 6-2 MAC) to just nine first downs and 23 passing yards. The Broncos held the Huskies to 0-for-7 on third down, and recorded two sacks.
NIU's opening drive made it down to the WMU 24 yard line, but a botched shotgun snap on third and long was recovered by the Broncos. WMU then went on an 11-play, 72-yard drive over the next 5:00 as Borske put the Broncos ahead 7-0.
After a punt from Nick Mihalic pinned NIU at is own four yard line early in the second quarter, Northern Illinois' Clint Ratkovich burst through the line for a 96-yard touchdown run on the next play.
The Broncos responded quickly with a three-play, 84-yard drive that started with a 27-yard catch from Moore and ended with a 50-yard catch by Moore. On the ensuing kickoff, NIU muffed the return and the WMU was able to jump on it.
A pass interference call, two Tyler rushes, and a six-yard pass to Moore put the Broncos ahead 21-7 with 8:42 left in the half.
As the Western Michigan defense continued to cause problems for NIU, Moore added his fourth receiving touchdown with 1:20 to go before the break to put the Broncos up 28-7. WMU then kept NIU at arm's length throughout the second half.
