Illini Under Pressure After 2 Losses
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) -- Illinois won its first six games on big plays.

After two losses, coach Ron Zook wants the Illini (6-2, 2-2 Big Ten) to think small. One play at a time.

It will start Saturday at No. 21 Penn State (7-1, 4-0), a team that has won six in a row. Illinois has scored 21 total points the last two weeks and hasn't scored before the fourth quarter of either loss.

Zook isn't sure what's gone wrong. He says his team has played tight, and it may be because the Illini had been expected to win.
