No. 21 Nebraska 45, Illinois 14.

September 28, 2014

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Even if Wes Lunt had been able to play against Nebraska, it probably wouldn't have mattered. Not with the Illinois defense unable to slow the Cornhuskers' running game.

The Illini allowed 458 yards rushing and 624 overall in a 45-14 loss to the No. 21 Huskers on Saturday night.

"We knew from coming into this week that they wanted to run the ball. Outside zone, inside zone, they wanted to run the ball," linebacker T.J. Neal Jr. said. "They're a running team. And they had an aggressive offensive line that made it hard to get to the running back."
