Wisconsin Vs. Illinois Score Update: Badgers Trying To Escape Champaign Alive

Wisconsin was facing a 17-7 deficit to Illinois going into the half, putting their bid to win the "Division with Ohio State" Championship in serious jeopardy if they couldn't come up with some way to change things in the second half. The third quarter will do nicely if the lead holds up.

The Badgers put up 14 unanswered points in the frame, one on a five-yard pass from Russell Wilson to Montee Ball and another on a one-yard run by Wilson to take a 21-17 edge into the fourth quarter. Wilson is 7-of-10 for just 63 yards, while Ball has carried the ball 26 times for 134 yards and a score. Illinois is trying to help the Badgers all they can -- Reilly O'Toole has generously donated two interceptions to Wisconsin, and a fumble on top of that brings the total number of Illini turnovers to three.
