IL shocks Wisconsin with game-winning FG in incredible comeback win

IL shocks Wisconsin with game-winning FG in incredible comeback win”

Now they've seen that streak come to an end, and possibly the Big Ten title hopes as well. Last week it was then-No.

The Badgers had not trailed this season, allowing only 29 points with four shutouts in six games.

Heisman Trophy contender Jonathan Taylor rushed 28 times for 132 yards and one touchdown for Wisconsin, but he also had a fumble in IL territory in the fourth quarter to help fuel the IL comeback.

On Saturday afternoon, the Wisconsin Badgers entered their game against IL with an undefeated record and a huge game against Ohio State looming in the background. James McCourt's field goal kick split the uprights to give IL its first win over a ranked team since it upset No. 1 Ohio State in 2007.

When the kick sailed through the uprights as time expired and shattered the budding dreams of a magical season, nothing but stunned silence emanated from Wisconsin's sideline while bedlam reigned from every other corner of Memorial Stadium.

"We had a great game plan and we are healthy now". He sailed a pass on third-and-5 that Adams grabbed to give the IL a short field against the No. 1 defense in the nation.

And then Illinois' defense stepped up on the next possession, frustrating Wisconsin and picking off quarterback Jack Coan with 2:32 left in the fourth quarter.

Wisconsin added a field goal for a 10-0 edge before IL added their first touchdown with Brandon Peters finding Donny Navarro for a 48-yard score.

First, quarterback Brandon Peters threw a flawless pass to wide receiver Josh Imatorbhebhe in the end zone for a 29-yard touchdown, which brought IL within two points with just shy of six minutes left with the extra kick.

The loss likely eliminates Wisconsin from the College Football Playoff - unless the Badgers win-out and get some help. Betiku ranks fourth in the nation in sacks.

Wisconsin: The Badgers head to Ohio State for a game that lost a lot of luster in Champaign. The Badgers had won nine straight against the Illini.
