Texas Bowl: Illinois Scores Again, Leads Baylor 24-0

The Texas Bowl has the makings of a rout this year. The Illinois Fighting Illini extended their lead to 24-0 after a Mikel Leshoure 13 yard touchdown run. The touchdown put Illinois up 22-0 and head coach Ron Zook elected to go for the two point conversion, which was successful and gave Illinois a 24-0 lead.

Leshoure’s touchdown was his second of the game and capped off a nine play, 87 yard drive. Leshoure is making a case for MVP of the Texas Bowl as he’s rushed for 117 yards on 18 carries only three minutes into the third quarter.
