No. 3 Michigan beats Illinois 19-17 after Corum hurts knee

Michigan running back Blake Corum (2) is stopped by Illinois defensive lineman Jer'Zhan Newton (4) and linebacker Tarique Barnes (8) in the first half of the Illini’s 19-17 loss to the third-ranked Wolverines on Saturday in Ann Arbor.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Jake Moody made a go-ahead, 35-yard field goal with nine seconds left to give No. 3 Michigan a 19-17 win over Illinois.

Chase Brown rushed for 140 yards and two touchdowns in the loss for the Illini, who fall to 7-4 on the season. 

Illinois will close out the regular season with a trip to Northwestern next Saturday. They will try to snap a three-game losing streak. 

The undefeated Wolverines played much of the second half without star running back Blake Corum, who grabbed his left knee after being tackled just before halftime.

Michigan will now turn all its attention to playing rival and second-ranked Ohio State on the road, where they have not won since 2000 with a spot in the Big Ten champinship game and likely in the College Football Playoff at stake.
