NOTEBOOK YSU vs. Northern Iowa



Published: Sat, October 21, 2006 @ 12:00 a.m.


Good crowd: The attendance was 19,321, by far the best the Penguins have drawn at home this year. The previous high was 16,746 against Indiana State.Streak continues: Senior T.J. Peterson had two receptions that enabled him to continue a streak of at least one in 19 straight games. He and junior tight end Louis Irizarry have also caught a pass in every game this year. Eight different receivers caught a pass against the Panthers.Defense: Senior cornerback Jason Perry led the Penguins in tackles with nine and had a pass breakup, while junior Dorian Chenault had eight tackles and junior linebacker James Terry seven. Senior tackle Jim Phelan had five tackles, a fumble recovery and a blocked field goal in the game. The Penguins had only two tackles behind the line of scrimmage, one by Jeff Koval and the other by Mychal Savage.Big play team: Northern Iowa had 16 plays of 10 or more yards, the longest a 70 yard touchdown pass from Eric Sanders to Johnny Gray.Third miss: Sophomore kicker Brian Palmer missed his third extra point of the season, two of which have been blocked and were the result of poor snaps. Even Palmer's 28-yard field goal in the first quarter was partially tipped at the line of scrimmage by the Panthers, but still got through the uprights.Panther standout: Sophomore wide receiver Johnny Gray was Northern Iowa's big-play guy. He caught seven passes for 160 yards and three touchdowns and returned three kickoffs for 85 yards, including a 43-yarder on the opening kick.Up next: The Penguins continue through their toughest part of the schedule next Saturday with a visit to Normal, Ill., to meet Illinois State (6-1, 3-0) at 2:30 p.m.
