Champaign's poppin: Illini shock No. 6 Badgers

James McCourt kicked a 39-yard field goal as time expired and Illinois pulled off the biggest upset of the college football season, knocking off No. 6 Wisconsin 24-23 on Saturday.

Ben Fawkes ESPN Staff Writer 

The No. 6-ranked Wisconsin Badgers lose 24-23 to Illinois as 30.5-point favorites. It's the biggest pointspread upset of the season.

Heather Dinich ESPN Senior Writer 

Wisconsin's loss at Illinois was devastating to the Badgers and the entire Big Ten, which could have made a case for two CFP teams if the Badgers' only loss had been to Ohio State. Undefeated Minnesota now leads the West Division, and the Buckeyes are again shouldering the league's CFP hopes.

Wisconsin's first road game since Aug. 30 hasn't gone smoothly, despite an opening touchdown drive and a 210-124 edge in total yards. The Badgers only lead 13-7 at halftime and are fortunate not to be trailing after a penalty wiped out a long Illinois touchdown. Wisconsin needs to get its first-down run game going -- and more long runs in general -- after halftime. Jim Leonhard's defense has had a few uncharacteristic busts but no third-down conversions allowed.

Wisconsin's Taylor 3rd to 5,000 yards as junior

Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor on Saturday became only the third player in FBS history to reach 5,000 rushing yards before the end of his junior season -- and the fastest to reach the milestone.

Jonathan Taylor's 16-yard gain on the first play from scrimmage against Illinois makes the Wisconsin running back only the fourth player in FBS history to reach 5,000 rushing yards before the end of his junior season. Georgia's Herschel Walker, Wisconsin's Ron Dayne and Oregon's LaMichael James are the others. Taylor is the fastest to 5,000 yards, reaching the milestone on his 736th career carry.

Adam Rittenberg ESPN Senior Writer 

Wisconsin RB Jonathan Taylor needs 4 rushing yards today to become just the fourth FBS player to reach 5,000 rushing yards before the end of his junior season. He also would be the fastest to reach the 5,000-yard mark.
