Illinois freshman RB Mike Epstein rushed for 56 yards and a touchdown on eight carries in Friday's 47-23 loss to South Florida.
That Epstein's eight carries led the team tells you just about all you need to know regarding how this game went for the Illini. Poorly. It went poorly. As a team, Illinois managed just 15 first downs while losing the time of possession battle 38:17 to 21:43. For his part, the 6-foot, 195-pound Epstein turned in the vast bulk of his rushing yardage on a 45-yard touchdown sprint in which he found a crease up the middle and burst down the right sideline for glory. He also hauled in a nice 21-yard scoring grab in the fourth quarter, though the game was well out of reach at that point. Epstein has now rushed for 221 yards and three touchdowns over the first three games of the season. Sep 15 - 11:46 PM
