JACKSONVILLE, Ill. - Illinois College outscored St. Norbert College 20-0 in a pivotal third quarter as the host Blueboys went on to defeat the Green Knights 48-34 in a Midwest Conference game at England Stadium.

The Green Knights scored 21 points in the last 4 minutes 45 seconds of the first half to force a 21-21 halftime tie. Zach Klarkowski scored on a 19-yard touchdown run to finish a drive that was set by by a Josh Vanden Heuvel interception. St. Norbert forced a three-and-out and needed two plays to score again, with Mike Fabrizio finding Joe Green on a 16-yard touchdown pass.

St. Norbert's Justin Johnson then hauled in an interception at the Green Knights' 25-yard line with 1:39 left in the half. The Green Knights navigated 75 yards in nine plays, with Fabrizio hooking up with Logan Krueger on a 12-yard touchdown just 12 seconds before halftime.
