Illinois looked like a team primed for a major upset win on Friday night - for one half, anyway.

The Fighting Illini were trailing No. 10 Penn State, 21-17, after two quarters of play. Illinois had looked like the better team for much of that first half.

Illinois fans were excited - really excited. There was very little celebrating in the stands after that, unfortunately.

The second half went pretty poorly.

Penn State went on to win the game, 63-24. Yes, the Nittany Lions outscored the Illini by 35 points in the second half.

Illinois fans had a tough night:

Welp, there's always next week.
