The No. 17 Iowa football team rallied from a 10-0 deficit to defeat Illinois, 33-23, on Senior Day at Kinnick Stadium on Saturday.

A kickoff return touchdown by Charlie Jones and a pick six by Jack Campbell made up for Iowa’s offensive struggles, as did four field goals by kicker Caleb Shudak. Iowa is now 9-2 this season. With a win against Nebraska next week, plus a Wisconsin loss, Iowa would win the Big Ten West.

Below are some Twitter reactions to Iowa’s win.
