Illinois College scored three straight touchdowns early in the first half to take a 21-7 lead, but Ripon rallied back to take a 24-21 lead early in the fourth. The Blueboys reclaimed the lead with Brimmage's second TD run of the day, but Ripon went back ahead on a Tom Sawyer touchdown run with 2:41 remaining. IC then went 66 yards on six plays on the game-winning drive.
