WATCH: Trenard Davis completes trick play touchdown to Ricky Smalling

Rod Smith, you sly dog.

NCAA Football: South Florida at Illinois Patrick Gorski-USA TODAY Sports

In their opening drive of the second half, the Illini were able to capitalize on costly Penn State penalties — and they did it in style. Wide receiver Trenard Davis took the pitch from quarterback MJ Rivers and delivered a perfect pass to fellow wide out Ricky Smalling for the go-ahead touchdown, 24-21.

Illinois has been able to hang around in this one, playing a clean game, and not turning the ball over. Offensive coordinator Rod Smith is bringing out all the tricks to try and secure the upset for the Illini.
