The University of IL head coach led the squad to a wild comeback win over the Michigan State Spartans on Saturday.

IL (6-4, 4-3 Big Ten) trailed 28-3 in the second quarter and 31-10 entering the fourth. This set up the stage for Illini quarterback Brandon Peters, who threw two touchdowns in the final frame, including the game-winning five-yard strike to Daniel Barker.

The Illini are now bowl eligible for the first time since 2014. After starting the season 2-4, they've ripped off four Big Ten wins in a row.

Down 28-3, IL began its comeback when Peters threw a 46-yard touchdown pass to Josh Imatorbhebhe on the final play of the first half.

Michigan State lost to IL 37-34.

Down 31-10, Imatorbhebhe scored on an 83-yard catch and run with 14:48 left in the fourth.

While Michigan still has to take care of business this Saturday to truly revel in MSU's misfortunes, the fact that it's now 4-5 and limping into the game does add an extra level of revelry for the week.

The reprieve was only temporary for the collapsing Spartans. That would have tied the game, but James McCourt missed the extra point.

Lewerke stayed in the game on the ensuing possession, and the Spartans kicked a field goal to extend their lead to 34-30.

IL converted a fourth-and-17 with 1:55 remaining in the game on a 37-yard deep shot to Josh Imatorbhebhe.

The Spartans forced IL into a fourth-down situation from the 4, and Peters' pass to Caleb Reams fell incomplete. A minute later, IL had six first-and-goal plays from inside the 4-yard line, aided by two Michigan State time outs and a pass interference flag on fourth-and-goal by cornerback Josh Butler.

"They got what they". A loss to the Sun Devils seemed to be the start of the letdown season. Instead, MSU turned the ball over time and time again.

They get an bye week before traveling to No. 18 Iowa on November 23.
