Illinois kept the game close, and briefly took the lead in the 3rd quarter, putting Army down by 2. Army had an answer for that, with Clarence Jones tossing a 26 yard completion to Scott Spellmon. Army never trailed after that and achieved back-to-back bowl wins.

The drive was kept alive by a legendary 28 yard pass from Ronnie McAda to John Graves on a 4th and 24h.
