McSorley threw a 16-yard TD to Juwan Johnson on the first play of the quarter. "When we talk about a complete game, it's having the success for the full four quarters". The Illini took a three-point lead as wide receiver Trenard Davis - a former quarterback - took a reverse and threw a 17-yard touchdown pass to Ricky Smalling.

Sanders easily surpassed his previous highs of 118 yards and two TDs.

"I think we're close", McSorley said. Freshman tight end Pat Freiermuth scored his first career touchdown on a 5-yard pass from McSorley to make it 21-7. The Illini gave Penn State a scare after scoring in the third quarter to take the lead, but eventually faded down the stretch. Sanders' 14-yard touchdown pass to McSorley was called back due to an ineligible receiver downfield. Corbin ran twice for 66 yards before freshman M.J. Rivers threw a 6-yard dart to Smalling. Chase McLaughlin then kicked a 42-yard field goal as time expired to bring the Illini within four points at the break.

On the play before the touchdown, Cam Brown forced tight end Daniel Barker to fumble near the 1-yard line.
