MIAMI (AP) -- Seems like every half-century, a quarterback from Northern Illinois does something never seen previously in college football.

In 1963, the buzz hovered around George Bork's passing.

This season, the acclaim was over Jordan Lynch's running.

It's not a stretch to say that without Lynch's footwork, Northern Illinois wouldn't have busted into the Bowl Championship Series and gotten a spot in the Orange Bowl against Florida State. Lynch can throw the ball -- 24 touchdowns against only five interceptions this season -- but he seems better when he takes off running.

The native of Chicago's south side entered the Orange Bowl with 1,771 yards rushing, the most by any quarterback in any college season.
