Youngstown, Ohio (AP) -

Martin Ruiz rushed for a 1-yard touchdown with 28 seconds left, capping a 10-point fourth-quarter comeback and lifting Youngstown State to a 14-10 win over Northern Iowa on Saturday night.

Trailing 10-7 in the fourth quarter, Youngstown State (5-1, 3-0 Missouri Valley) forced a three-and-out late and took possession at its 47-yard line with 3:37 left to play. The Penguins ran the ball on 10 consecutive plays to pay dirt -- the last four by Ruiz, including the game-winner.

Northern Iowa (2-4, 1-2) was held to 173 total yards. The Panthers took a 3-0 lead on Austin Errthum's 27-yard field goal midway through the second quarter. Three plays later, Duncan Ferch intercepted and returned Ricky Davis' pass 34 yards, pushing the lead to 10.
