Don’t look now, but there could be an upset brewing in Campaign, Illinois as the Fighting Illini host the No. 10-ranked Penn State Nittany Lions.

Down by four points in the third quarter, Lovie Smith’s team pulled a rabbit out of the hat on a trick-play touchdown that caught Penn State’s defense with its pants down.

This stunning play gave Illinois a 24-21 lead over Penn State with most of the second half left to play.
