CHAMPAIGN, ILL. (AP) - Ohio State’s 17-7 upset of Illinois answered one big question for the Buckeyes _ how do we end a two losing streak?

But Illinois’ loss on Saturday raised a bunch of questions for the Illini (6-1, 2-1 Big Ten) and dropped them from 16 to 23 in The Associated Press college football poll.

Ohio State (4-3, 1-2) forced three turnovers, and one set up the winning touchdown. The Buckeyes also held Illini runners to 116 yards.

Illinois fans could also question the decision to punt early in Buckeyes territory, and another to go for it on a late fourth down instead of trying a field goal.
