The Illinois Fighting Illini had a couple consecutive wins when the season was just new. Their 31-24 win against the Kent State Golden Flashes and then the 34-14 sweeping-up of the Western Illinois Leathernecks. But after that, things became worse for the Illini.
The Fighting Illini lost a couple of games. Their latest game, a 63-24 loss to the Penn State Nittany Lions is still reasonable but their loss before that was not so. They were defeated by the South Florida Bulls 25-19 and it was a huge bummer.
With this game against the Scarlet Knights, they are looking for regaining their spot on the standings chart. If they are unable to defeat Rutgers, things will become dirty too quickly and the team will lose a lot of respect from everyone.
The Rutgers Scarlet Knights are on a three-game losing streak. The #4 Ohio State Buckeyes (a 52-3 loss), the Kansas Jayhawks (a 55-14) loss, and the Buffalo Bulls (a 42-13 loss) have all been through the Knigts.
The only match that these New Jersey knights had under contol was their season opener against the Texas State Bobcats, which was finally a 35-7 win. The Knights need to do some patching-up and up their game overall if they want to be relevant this early season.
