The stats remain close, but Illinois is executing better on offense. The IU defense needs to force some three-and-outs, just so they don't tire in the fourth quarter.
IU has 142 yards passing and 211 total yards, while Illinois has 170 yards rushing and 264 total yards, according to the ESPN box score. The time of possession is about even.
It is going to come down to the defense in the second half. If they can't stop the Illini offense, it's going to be more of the same.
