September 07, 2003|From Associated Press

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Jon Beutjer threw four touchdown passes and Travis Williams returned a blocked field goal 66 yards for a score on Saturday as Illinois defeated Illinois State, 49-22.

Division I-AA Illinois State was anything but a pushover for the Fighting Illini (1-1), who play Saturday against UCLA at the Rose Bowl.

The Redbirds (1-1) rolled up 511 yards behind quarterback Mike Souza, who completed 33 of 56 passes for 385 yards.

Dwayne Smith, who transferred from Illinois before the 2002 season, caught 14 passes for 243 yards and two touchdowns.
