Northwestern upsets rival Illinois 29-10

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) The conditions Saturday at Memorial Stadium were a depressing combination of rain, wind and flop sweat. The home crowd was leaving wet and unhappy after witnessing rival Northwestern upset the bowl-bound Illini 29-10.

But one thing remained constant. Illinois coach Lovie Smith was his usual stoic, almost upbeat self afterwards

"So, today wasn't our best," Smith said, smiling serenely. "Disappointment is not a strong enough word for today. But hey, we're going bowling."
