Seniors' Saturday v. tOSU

Seventeen Illini seniors will be playing their last game at Memorial Stadium Saturday. And it won't be an easy game. The Ohio State University Buckeyes have had a very good season, despite their crushing loss to USC early in the season and the Penn State loss. The Buckeyes have had a couple impressive games, including a big win over Northwestern last week.

The Illini seniors have fought through a couple really tough seasons, an amazing run to the Rose Bowl, and this season -- which hasn't quite lived up to expectations. But the potential for this Illini team is there. They can play like the team that upset #1 tOSU in Columbus last year, except that often they don't.

So what do we need to see to make it 2 in a row over the Buckeyes?

A win will be a challenge, but this should be an "on" week in the every-other-week pattern the 2008 Illini have fallen into. Besides the statement that beating the Buckeyes would make, bowl eligibility is once again on the line...

Go Illini!
