Chris Spachman INT return
Official recap
McCathorn Clayton's 64-yard pass to Robb Schnitzler late in the first half cooled an Illinois rally and spurred Nebraska to a 52-25 win over the Illini.

Illinois seemed to have momentum going its way just before halftime, having narrowed a 17-0 deficit to 17-10, but the Clayton-Schnitzler aerial set up a Doug DuBose touchdown in the final minute of the first half, starting a run of 28 unanswered points for Nebraska.
