Crazy OT Loss Haunts Illini With Michigan In Town
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) -- While Michigan spent the past week trying to put an upset loss at Iowa behind it, Illinois prepared to face the Wolverines by reliving a nightmare from 2010.

The last time the teams met, Michigan won a 67-65 triple-overtime thriller that still haunts Illinois.

The No. 22 Wolverines (7-2, 3-2 Big Ten) this Saturday head to Champaign to take on the Illini (6-3, 2-3).

Illinois quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase vividly remembers hearing the Michigan crowd roar as his pass fell incomplete on the last play of overtime. His counterpart, Denard Robinson, had almost 400 all-purpose yards.

But Michigan coach Brady Hoke this week didn't talk like a man whose team could put up 60 or more points. He instead talked about being able to win without big plays.
