CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) Rutgers snapped a 16-game Big Ten losing streak against Illinois over the weekend.
Wide receiver Ricky Smalling and tight end Louis Dorsey aren't to blame.
In the 35-24 home loss, both players- who are also roommates - scored their first career touchdowns and were rare bright spots for the Illini. Smalling had a career-high five receptions for 111 yards, including a 30-yard TD grab in the fourth quarter. He became just the sixth player in program history to have a 100-yard receiving game as a true freshman.
