Illini's Benn was there for big win over Buckeyes but can't remember much

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) -- Illinois wide receiver Arrelious Benn played in one of the biggest moments in recent Illini football history two years ago. But the junior receiver says he doesn't remember much about it.

Illinois heads to Columbus on Saturday to face the 13th-ranked Buckeyes.

Benn was a freshman during Illinois' 28-21 upset of then-No. 1 Ohio State two years ago. That game propelled the Illini to the Rose Bowl and sank the Buckeyes' bid for a perfect season.

Benn, though, suffered a concussion during the game. He says he remembers nothing of the game-ending drive that sealed the win.

Illinois held the ball for the final 8:09 and made first down after an unlikely first down.

Benn says he couldn't tell anyone now what happened during that drive. He says what he knows of the drive has come from watching video clips.
