Nic Baker, Southern Illinois stun Northwestern 31-24

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 held on to top Northwestern 31-24. 

Garrett caught Baker's toss to cap a 19-play, 74-yard drive to put the Salukis ahead 23-17 as SIU beat a Big Ten opponent for the second time. 

A Missouri Valley Conference member, Southern Illinois' other win over a Big Ten foe -- against seven losses -- was against Indiana in 2006 when Salukis coach Nick Hill was their quarterback.
