Illini Fall To Wisconsin, Missouri Beats Texas Tech

Monte Ball thrashed the Illinois Fighting Illini defense for 224 yards and two touchdowns as Wisconsin took down the Illini 28-17.  Illinois led 17-7 at halftime, but fell apart with four second-half turnovers as the Illini dropped their fifth straight game.  They will head to Minnesota to take on the Gophers in the regular-season finale.

Missouri became bowl eligible with their 31-27 victory over Texas Tech.  James Franklin rushed for 152 yards and two touchdowns including the game-winner with 2:22 left in regulation.  The Tigers were without coach Gary Pinkel, who was serving a school imposed one game suspension after being arrested on suspicion of drunken driving last week.  Mizzou will take on Kansas at Arrowhead this week in the regular-season finale.
