Our Turn Now?

The Illini have lost five straight to our neighbors to the west, so perhaps, today in Champaign, it will be our turn. Provided the Illini bring their on-week fire (in their every-other-week patter), it should be a good game. The Illini offense is currently #11 in the nation, while the Hawkeyes boast the #20 defense. But the Hawkeyes can score, too, as they proved in their game against Wisconsin.

After a tough season, Coach Ferentz has his team on track for a solid performance. And the Hawkeyes always seem to know how to get to the Illini. Last year, the Illini lost a heartbreaker in Iowa City. This year, they have the tools to win -- they just need to put it together on the field, and limit mistakes.

Since the Illini were flat last week, I expect them to be fired up today. The Illini defense will likely have their hands full with Shonn Greene, but Juice and his receivers should give the Hawkeyes all they can handle, as well. It should work in our favor to be playing at Memorial Stadium.

Go Illini!
