Illinois shocks Wisconsin 24-23

Illinois earned one of the biggest upsets of the 2019 season, taking down Wisconsin on a last-second field goal 24-23.

James McCourt lifted a 31-yard field goal as time expired to send the Badgers to their first loss of the season.

Wisconsin committed two turnovers in the final eight minutes of the game, and three overall for the whole game that led to 17 points for Illinois.

The Badgers fall to 6-1 ahead of their game next Saturday at Ohio State.

Wisconsin out-gained Illinois and had a two-to-one time of possession advantage, but ultimately couldn't overcome two costly fourth-quarter turnovers.
