Iowa State Holds Off NIU
AMES, Iowa (AP) -- Alexander Robinson rushed for 97 yards and two touchdowns and Iowa State beat Northern Illinois 27-10 Thursday night.

Austen Arnaud added 265 yards passing and a TD run for the Cyclones (1-0), who raced out to a 17-0 halftime lead. Iowa State's offense stalled much of the second half, but its new-look defense held the Huskies (0-1) to just 249 yards of offense.

Robinson's 63-yard touchdown run early in the second quarter put the Cyclones ahead 14-0. Northern Illinois pulled within 17-10 midway through the fourth quarter, but Robinson's 5-yard touchdown run with 5:05 left put the game out of reach.

Quarterback DeMarcus Grady threw three interceptions for Northern Illinois, which fell to 4-10 against the Big 12.
