Illinois storms back to beat Michigan State 37-34

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) Lovie Smith and Illinois are now eligible for a bowl after the biggest comeback in school history.

The Illini did it by forcing turnovers - no surprise there - and when that wasn't enough, Brandon Peters and Josh Imatorbhebhe were there to keep the rally going.
