On MJ Rivers’ first play, Reggie Corbin scores 80-yard TD

Rivers set Corbin up for the long score.

NCAA Football: Illinois at Rutgers Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

AJ Bush got 20 minutes. Illinois had three turnovers and zero points.

MJ Rivers got one play. Illinois made it a one-possession game.

After a mediocre first 20 minutes with Bush in the pocket, it took Illinois just one play to spring Reggie Corbin 80 yards down the field for the Illini’s first score of the afternoon to cut the deficit to 14-7 on the road at Wisconsin.

Bush had as many completions (two) as interceptions during his stint Saturday, while Rivers set up a huge block downfield to help Corbin find the endzone for Illinois’ first score since the first quarter last week against Purdue.
