Tommy DeVito is making plays in his return from injury. He left the Iowa game with an ankle injury in Week 6.

The Illinois offense was creeping into Minnesota territory when DeVito threw a great ball to receiver Brian Hightower to put Illinois within scoring distance. Hightower wasn’t able to score, but DeVito had a 5-yard rushing touchdown just a couple plays later.

DeVito has 200+ yards passing in the second half. Since coming over from Syracuse he has been a great addition for the Fighting Illini. DeVito had 1,163 yards passing with 12 total touchdowns coming into this game.

Illinois is going to need DeVito to keep making plays if it wants to beat Minnesota and take control of the B1G West. Both Minnesota and Illinois have one loss in this Week 7 matchup.

The second half of the game is being broadcasted on BTN.
