Week 4 wrapup

This week I played undefeated Illinois in Madison. The game, as always was played in Minneapolis to a crowd of 65,405 digital fans, and my dog. Wisconsin opened with a convincing drive capped by a 10 yard pass to Jimmy Sullivan. The next two plays were both kick returns for touchdowns. Illinois took the lead 7-6 (on a missed WI kick), but Respress ran one back 97 yards to match the Illini's 101 yard return. Converted a two point conversion to go up 14-7 and never looked back.

David Swan had a 38 yard rushing touchdown and then just 32 seconds later scored on a 67 yard punt return. Illinois closed the half with a field goal to turn the game into a 28-10 halftime matchup.

Jimmy Sullivan showed off his white teeth, grinning to a 31 yard third quarter touchdown run, and Senior QB Eric Ferguson put up the final touchdown with a 5 yard scamper up the gut.
