Illinois' starting QB goes down, backup runs in 26-yard TD
Just after Purdue’s Brian Lankford-Johnson scored his second career touchdown, Illniois answered right back with its backup quarterback, Chayce Crouch, scoring a touchdown of his own.
Crouch came in and ran in a 26-yard touchdown after starting signal caller Wes Lunt went down with an injury earlier on the drive.
