Illinois and Purdue were both looking for their first Big Ten victories of the season.
The Illini missed theirs by inches at the end of regulation. Purdue did not miss in overtime.
With the score tied, 31-31, Illinois’ Chase McLaughlin lined up for a potential game-winning 41-yard field goal. It initially looked good and got the crowd excited until it hit the upright.

That led to the Boilermakers getting a chance to win in overtime after a stop. J.D. Dellinger made the 28-yard field-goal attempt.
