After the turnover..

Kellen Lewis takes the ball for 20 yards on first down into Illinois territory. The next play is a 17-yard pass to Josiah Sears. First down is an incomplete pass. Marcus Thigpen fumbles the ball on the second down hand-off and Illinois recovers. Not a good start for the running game...

Illinois's offense is back on the field. First down is a short pass for a gain of two. Second and 8. The Illini run for six yards, bringing up third and 2. Williams runs on an option play to the 45 for a first down. It's a gain of four.

Four wide receivers and Williams throws another deep ball. It's knocked away, but IU is called for pass interference. The radio says it's marginal, but probably a good call. Illinois now has a first down at the IU 41.
