Well, we have seen a team score a touchdown in Wrigley Field's East end zone, the one with the ivy and the bricks, thanks to a Northwestern pick-six. After Illinois rushed -- with success -- on their first ten plays, they decided to attempt a trick passing play. It failed, as Northwestern's Brian Peters picked off the ball and ran it all the way back for the score.
After this brief, radical experiment with something called "passing," Illinois returned to its proven method. Mikel LeShoure picked up right where he left off with a 70-yard run that put the Illini in a first-and-goal situation, and Jason Ford followed up with a short trot into the end zone.
Illinois now leads Northwestern, 21-7, and we're still in the first quarter. The spectacle is no longer Wrigley Field. It is Mikel Leshoure. The man has 147 rushing yards for Illinois, and there are still over four minutes remaining in the first quarter. This is one you'll want to watch if you have either ESPNU or ESPN3.
