Illinois vs. Michigan score: Illini trail, 17-0, at halftime

Illinois hasn't been able to get anything done against No. 25 Michigan on Saturday, as they trail, 17-0, at the half. Their most promising drive of the day started at their own 34-yard line, and quarterback Nathan Scheelhasse broke away for a 23-yard rush that put them into scoring position. Taylor Zalewski was called on to kick the 50-yard field goal from the Michigan 32, but it was off the mark and they were held scoreless for the half.

Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson got the scoring started when he hit wide receiver Jeremy Gallon for a 71-yard touchdown in the first. Robinson also rushed for a 6-yard touchdown late in the half to make the game 17-0. Their other score was a Brendan Gibbons 18-yard field goal, which came after Illinois bottled up running back Fitzgerald Toussaint for rushes of no gain from the 1-yard line.

Scheelhasse has thrown the ball six times, but has only completed two of his passes for four yards. Their rushing attack is fairing a bit better, but they're still out-gained in that area, with Michigan putting up 120 yards to Illinois' 96. Robinson has 66 yards off of eight carries and 119 yards through the air.
