Michigan State finished off a 15-play, 99-yard drive at the end of the first half with a bit of luck against Illinois.

Leading 7-3, the Spartans faced a 3rd and 25 from the Illinois 29-yard line with less than 30 seconds left. MSU quarterback Connor Cook felt pressure, rolled right and fired toward wide receiver Bennie Fowler, who was draped in double coverage.

Illinois freshman cornerback Jaylen Dunlap looked primed for an interception, but the ball deflected off his hands twice and right into the arms of Fowler at the goal line for an MSU touchdown.

The score put Michigan State up 14-3 and the Spartans didn't look back, blowing out Illinois in the second half.
