CHAMPAIGN, Ill. - The Badgers lost to the Fighting Illini with a final score of 23-24 in a major upset after a last-second field goal from Illinois.

Early in the game, the Badgers struggled to score, largely due to the Fighting Illini's defense that largely stopped the Badgers' rush attempts.

The Badgers are now 6-1 this season. The Badgers' next game is against No. 4 ranked Ohio State.

While the Badgers (and running back Johnathan Taylor) didn't dominate compared to other games this season, Taylor now has reached the 5,000 career rushing yards milestone.
