Illini find silver lining in Wisconsin loss

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) - Illinois coach Tim Beckman isn't calling last weekend's 31-14 loss to Wisconsin a victory, moral or otherwise.

     The first-year coach said yesterday he saw three quarters of pretty good football out of the Illini (2-4, 0-2 Big Ten). And that's an improvement.

     Now as the Illini prepare for another tough road test at No. 25 Michigan (3-2, 1-0), Beckman says his team needs to learn how to finish.

     Illinois lost in back-to-back blowouts before the Wisconsin game but found itself very much in Saturday's game after three quarters. The Badgers led 10-7.

     Safety Steve Hull said the defense can build on what it did right in those 45 minutes of football.
