IU still leads by six

The crowd encouraged Indiana to go for it on fourth down.

The Hoosiers had the lead and the ball at the Illini’s 9-yard-line. It was fourth-and-1. IU coach Bill Lynch decided to get the first and the Hoosiers called a toss sweep to Trea Burgess. The running back had a hole, but he slipped for a one-yard loss.

Illinois had a scoring chance late in the quarter. The Illini made it to the Hoosiers’ 6, but quarterback Juice Williams fumbled. IU cornerback Ray Fisher scooped up the loose ball and returned it to Indiana’s 32.

Indiana remains ahead 13-7 at the end of the third quarter.
