Illini dominate stat sheet, not scoreboard

The Illinois offense is cooking for the second consecutive game, though big mistakes continue to hurt Ron Zook's team.

The Illini have more than twice as many yards as Fresno State early in the second quarter but had to rally from a 14-7 deficit after a Juice Williams interception was returned for a touchdown. Williams has been better with his feet than his arm, and he and running backs Mikel LeShoure and Jason Ford are finding room in a vulnerable Bulldogs defense.

Ryan Mathews has a touchdown run, but Illinois is doing a decent job on the nation's top rusher so far.

The Illini are dominating time of possession but remained tied at 14-14.
