Illinois couldn’t follow through with a 2nd straight victory after its upset over Penn State in Happy Valley.

The Fighting Illini dropped a close one to the Scarlet Knights this past Saturday, 20-14 as they scored 10 unanswered points in the 4th quarter to pull out the win.

That loss dropped Illinois to 3-6 on the season as it will have to win out to be bowl eligible this season.
