Penn State Vs. Illinois Halftime Score: What Score?

We knew the sledding would be tough as Penn State and Illinois played a fun game of football in frigid weather. So the 0-0 halftime score shouldn't come as a huge surprise, especially considering both teams boast strong defenses and offenses that simply grind it out. But this is pretty bad.

Both teams are under 100 yards of total offense, combining for 176 yards in the half. Passing, as expected, is almost non-existent, with Penn State throwing for 33 yards and Illinois picking up 22 yards through the air. And each team has two turnovers -- Penn State fumbled twice while Illinois fumbled once and threw an interception.

This may be a race to seven, but tune-in for punting!
