Dre Brown's tackle-breaking 13-yard run got IL (3-4, 1-3) to the Wisconsin 25 with 34 seconds left and then the Illini set up McCourt to attempt a victor.

"No matter if it's an extra point or a game-winner you kind of have to take the approach that every kick is the same because if you take a different approach you might get thrown off or something might be a little different", said McCourt, who missed a 40-yard attempt in the first quarter.

This was even more stunning. IL students had stormed the field while House of Pain's "Jump Around" blared through the stadium speakers, a not-so-subtle homage to Wisconsin's post-third-quarter tradition at Camp Randall Stadium. The win was Illinois' first Big Ten victory against a ranked team since 2007.

First, it was Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor fumbling in IL territory while the Badgers were up 23-14 with 8 minutes to go.

"We've been close a couple times, where we felt like we had a chance to win the game", IL coach Lovie Smith told the Big Ten Network.

On Saturday afternoon, the Wisconsin Badgers entered their game against IL with an undefeated record and a huge game against Ohio State looming in the background. "There's a lot of areas for each individual we've got to get better, learn from, and then move forward".

And then Illinois' defense stepped up on the next possession, frustrating Wisconsin and picking off quarterback Jack Coan with 2:32 left in the fourth quarter.

Wisconsin had opportunities to pad its lead, but settled for a field goal after a first-and-goal from the 3 and then Taylor fumbled at the IL 25. The Fighting Illini went on a four-play, 75-yard scoring drive, capped off with a Brandon Peters touchdown passes to Josh Imatorbhebhe to make the score 23-21.

Following the loss, Wisconsin head coach Paul Chryst was asked about the loss.

IL won the game despite losing the time of possession battle 40:49 to 19:11.

Tony Adams intercepted Coan on the Badgers' final drive of the game, giving the ball back to the Fighting Illini.
