Michigan State quarterback Connor Cook threw a pass on 3rd-and-25 from the Illinois 29-yard line to wide receiver Bennie Fowler, who managed to haul in the touchdown catch after a defender tipped the ball up in the air.

It was the 15th play of a drive that spanned 99 yards over eight minutes. The touchdown catch gave the Spartans a 14-3 lead with only seconds remaining before halftime.
