    DEKALB, Illinois — Cameron Stingily ran for a pair of second-half touchdowns to help Northern Illinois move into a 1st-place tie in the West Division of the Mid-American Conference with a 27-24 win over Toledo on Tuesday night.

    Northern Illinois (8-2, 5-1) has won four consecutive division titles.

    Stingily's first score, a 4-yard run, gave Northern Illinois a 20-10 lead with 9:18 left in the third quarter.

    Dwight Macon, a wide receiver who, due to injuries, became the fourth Toledo player this season to take snaps under center, scored on a 1-yard run nearly 3 minutes later.

    After Stingily's second touchdown run with 6:33 to play, Macon scored on a 3-yard run to pull Toledo (6-5, 5-1) within 3, but Northern Illinois recovered the ensuing onside kick to seal it.

    Macon completed 8 of 11 passes for 140 yards, including a 69-yard touchdown to Corey Jones. Macon added 97 yards rushing.
