Eddie Phillips had a big day, rushing for 158 yards and a big play late in the game. Halfback passes by Phillips and J.C. Love Jordan and a fake field goal first down run by holder Tom Grogan. Two of the biggest plays were saved for late in the game.

The first was by Eddie Phillips who took a third and 29 handoff from Chuck Long and ran 30 yards for the first down with only two to three minutes left in the game.

After Iowa’s drive stalled just inside Illinois territory, Tom Nichol was called upon to pooch kick, rolling the ball out of bounds inside the Illinois one yard line. The Illini went four and out, the students stormed the field and the Hawks had a 14-13 upset.
