Entering the halftime, the Illinois Fighting Illini were down 38-0 to the No. 9 Ohio State Buckeyes. But the Illini showed life to open the second half.
Ohio State back up quarterback Dwayne Haskins took a read option only to have the ball be popped out by Illinois’ Stanley Green. After forcing the fumble, the Illini’s Ahmari Hayes went 43 yards on a scoop and score.
