Illinois' Wilson wins Big Ten award

By Scott Powers

Illinois senior cornerback Tavon Wilson was named the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week on Monday.

In Saturday's win over Indiana, Wilson returned a fumble 66 yards for a touchdown and recorded a team-high 11 tackles and a career-best 3.5 tackles for loss, including a sack.

It was Wilson's first conference honor.
