Louisiana Tech turned six Illinois turnovers and a 284-yard, four-touchdown night from quarterback Colby Cameron into a 52-24 road upset of Illinois Saturday. Cameron's favorite target was Quinton Patton who caught six balls for 164 yards and two touchdowns for the Bulldogs. Illinois (2-2) turned the ball over three times in the first quarter and the Bulldogs (3-0) cashed in for an early 21-7 lead. Cameron and Patton connected on a pair of early third-quarter touchdowns that put the Bulldogs up for good, 35-17. After missing the past two games with a sprained ankle, Illinois quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase was ineffective and left the game in the first quarter. Reilly O'Toole was 19 of 25 for 120 yards in his place. The Bulldog defense sacked Illinois' quarterbacks five times.
