There hasn’t been a college football conference with as much parity as the Big Ten. In a year that saw its head coach removed, an Illinois team that was supposed to be lifeless has surprised the nation with some impressive wins.
It’s latest victory came over Purdue on stellar performances from its top running backs senior Josh Ferguson and Ke’Shawn Vaughn. The duo combined for over 300 yards rushing and two touchdowns.
Vaughn led all rushers with 180 yards and accounted for the two rushing scores for the Illini. He also led the team in highlight plays, like this one he made in the middle of the field for a 29 yard gain.
The Big Ten looks pretty good this year, even its bottom dwellers have some talent.
