WI TAKES A LOSS

WI TAKES A LOSS

Illinois rallied from a 13-point second-half deficit to knock No. 6
Wisconsin from the ranks of the unbeaten with a stunning 24-23 win.

After the Illini pulled within 23-21 on Brandon Peters’ fourth-quarter touchdown pass to Josh Imatorbhebhe, Tony Adams intercepted Badgers quarterback Jack Coan with 2:33 remaining to set up James McCourt’s game-winning kick as time expired. 

Wisconsin entered the game as a 30 1/2-point favorite and had not trailed at
any point in winning its first six games.
