Live updates: Nebraska commits its fourth turnover of game as Illini open 41-17 lead | Football

2:31 left in the third quarter.

1:22 p.m. Wan’Dale Robinson with Nebraska’s play of the game. He takes a handoff and bobs, weaves and contorts himself 32 yards down the field to Illini 1-yard line. It really was an impressive play. 

Then, Luke McCaffrey takes it from there, punching it in to trim Illinois’ lead to 31-17.

1:13 p.m. Illinois tacks on a field goal via James McCourt’s right leg. The drive was extended by a fake punt on fourth time. Perhaps more detrimental for the Huskers than three points is that Illinois ate up nearly seven minutes of time on that drive.

12:43 p.m. Halftime: Illinois 28, Nebraska 10.

12:38 p.m. Huskers try to sneak in a score before halftime, but Luke McCaffrey is intercepted on a deep pass to Levi Falck. Just not clicking today for the redshirt freshman. 

12:36 p.m. Parker Gabriel’s assessment on the stagnant passing game, signed and delivered from the Memorial Stadium press box, which offers an optimal aerial view of receivers downfield:

12:23 p.m. Luke McCaffrey looks off the mark as a passer today. He’s overthrowing guys, underthrowing guys, delivering passes late. Cue the clamoring for Adrian Martinez.
