FINAL: Illinois 28, Youngstown State 17
CHAMPAIGN (AP) — It took a while but new quarterback Wes Lunt delivered a come-from-behind 28-17 win Saturday for Illinois over Youngstown State in a season opener.
Lunt threw three late touchdowns for Illinois. The second was a 15-yarder to running back Josh Ferguson that put Illinois up for good 21-17.
CHAMPAIGN — When he was bored and had little else going on as a seventh-grader in Charlottesville, Va., Jalen Brunson would call Carl Brown and ask the same question each time.
DeKALB — Dre Brown committed to Illinois last March but didn’t think about enrolling early at Illinois. At the time.
CHAMPAIGN — Illinois could wear a different football uniform for every game this season.
And not sport the same look through next season, too.
