Weekend Preview

It's November. The clocks have fallen back. And there's lots going on in Illini sports this weekend.

The Illini football team heads up north to Minnesota, looking to build on their strong performance against Michigan.

In Champaign, the volleyball team, now ranked #5, will host #15 Michigan and Michigan State this weekend. And they will take the court without libero Ashley Edinger. She is out for the rest of the season with an ACL tear in her left knee. She tops the Illini record book in digs, so her injury is a big loss for the Illini.

On Sunday, Bruce Weber's basketball team will play their final exhibition game before the season gets underway. The boys warmed up with Missouri Southern last week, and will take on Quincy this weekend. Then college basketball will get underway, followed by what should be a very tough Big Ten season.

So take your pick -- there's plenty Illini games to follow this weekend. Go Illini!
