IL completes largest comeback in program history, beats Michigan State 37-34

Pick'Em Our picks for MSU vs. Illinois and other marquee college football games	
				Mike Carter-USA TODAY Sports

It wasn't so much a Hail Mary as it was just a long pass to a single-covered receiver deep down the field - the first of several puzzling mistakes by Michigan State.

Trailing 25 in the second quarter, IL completed its largest comeback in program history by scoring 27 points in the fourth quarter. Down 34-30, they converted fourth-and-17, then drew a pass interference flag in the end zone on another fourth-down pass.

The thrilling comeback win clinches bowl eligibility for the Fighting Illini under Smith, and represents the best stretch of Smith's collegiate career to this point. Then Reggie Corbin scored on a 6-yard run to make it 31-24.

IL converted a fourth-and-17 with 1:55 remaining in the game on a 37-yard deep shot to Josh Imatorbhebhe.

Travis Brenda narrowly upset Jonathan Shell, then state House majority floor leader, despite Shell having the endorsement of U.S. As the party's presidential candidates debate ambitious, big-ticket items such as " Medicare for All ", moderates urged caution.

The loss drops hapless Michigan State to 4-5 overall. A minute later, IL had six first-and-goal plays from inside the 4-yard line, aided by two Michigan State time outs and a pass interference flag on fourth-and-goal by cornerback Josh Butler. Drama ensued when the PAT was missed, making the game 31-30 Michigan State.

Illinois: What a way for the Illini to qualify for a bowl. Instead, MSU turned the ball over time and time again.

It's officially hate week, with in-state rival Michigan State coming to town for the battle for the Paul Bunyan Trophy.
