Illinois vs. Michigan score: Illini trail, 38-0, after 3 quarters

Illinois has only attempted 11 passes on the day, and they find themselves trailing the Michigan Wolverines 38-0 heading into the fourth and final quarter. Nathan Scheelhasse and Reilly O'Toole have combined for just 25 yards of passing, and it's all fallen on the rushing attack to move the ball. They've managed 106 yards on the ground, but Michigan has out-gained them by a good margin, with 159 yards through the air and 209 yards on the ground.

Wolverines quarterback Denard Robinson has completed seven of his 11 pass attempts, with two scores through the air. The first score of the game was a 71-yard touchdown to Jeremy Gallon. Robinson also has accounted for 128 yards on the ground, with a pair of touchdowns to boot. He got the third quarter started with a 49-yard rushing touchdown.

Illinois was trailing by a score of 17-0 heading into the second half, but allowed 21 points in the third quarter to virtually put this one to bed before the fourth quarter even started.
