The Illini, on a six-game winning streak, had given up just one touchdown in the previous 15 quarters. But Iowa scored on its first five possessions of the game and clobbered Illinois, 54-28.
Iowa sprinted out to a 35-14 halftime lead. Nick Bell had 145 of his 168 rushing yards over the first two quarters.
“He’s probably the best running back in the whole country right now,” Iowa quarterback Matt Rodgers said.
