RB Dre Brown stretches Illini lead with impressive 36-yard TD run
Illinois is gunning for the upset against Nebraska!
The Illini played strong in the first half against the Cornhuskers, carrying a 21-14 lead into the break. Coming out of the half, Illinois forced a quick stop and turned around on the offensive side of the ball.
Illinois quickly worked its way into Nebraska territory before setting up on the 36-yard line. From there, running back Dre Brown took care of the rest.
He raced through a huge hole created by the line and broke one tackle, taking it to the house for a nice score. That pushed the Illinois lead to 14 points in the third quarter:
