Hassan Haskins ran for 125 yards and a touchdown, Zach Charbonnet added 116 yards rushing, and No. 16 Michigan needed a late surge to put away from host Illinois 42-25 on Saturday.
The Wolverines (5-1, 3-1 Big Ten) built a 28-0 lead by halftime, but turnovers and an ineffective offense helped the Illini (2-4, 0-3) cut the lead to 28-25 with 12:50 left in the fourth quarter. Dre Brown ran in from a yard out and then converted a two-point conversion for Illinois.
Michigan responded with a long drive capped by Shea Patterson's 5-yard touchdown pass to Donovan Peoples-Jones. Patterson ran for a score after Michigan forced a turnover at the Illini 1.
Matt Robinson, starting for injured quarterback Brandon Peters, a graduate transfer from Michigan, was 16 of 25 for 192 yards and one touchdown for Illinois. He also ran for a score.
PURDUE 40, MARYLAND 14: Jack Plummer threw for 420 yards and three touchdowns, and Cory Trice returned an interception for a score to break open the game just before halftime and help Purdue (2-4, 1-2) roll past visiting Maryland (3-3, 1-2). Trice's 37-yard interception return with 18 seconds left in the first half made it 30-14. Plummer was 33 of 41 and connected with David Bell nine times for 138 yards and two touchdowns. Brycen Hopkins caught 10 passes for 140 yards, both career bests.
INDIANA 35, RUTGERS 0: Reakwon Jones raced 17 yards with a fumble to score 10 seconds into the game, and host Indiana (4-2, 1-2) rolled past Rutgers (1-5, 0-4), which was held to 75 yards. The Hoosiers scored three touchdowns in the opening 6:52, starting on the first play of the game. Indiana's Demarcus Elliott drilled Rutgers quarterback Johnny Langan to force the fumble, which Jones scooped up for the go-ahead score. It was the first of four Indiana sacks in the first half. Michael Penix Jr. completed 20 of 29 passes for 282 yards and three TDs with one interception. Indiana sophomore running back Stevie Scott III, a former Rutgers recruit who backed out of the commitment, ran for 164 yards on 12 carries.
