The Illinois Fighting Illini are coming off of a terrible loss at the hands of the Purdue Boilermakers. No one wants a 46-7 loss. The Illini are 3-3, badly looking forward to improving their score this season. They need their next solid win, like the 38-17 win they had on October 6th against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights. But this matchup is not where they get that win. In fact, this is not the kind of matchup where they get a win in the first place, no matter how small or big.
No matter how badly the Illini need the win, they won’t have much of a luck in this matchup and that’s a problem that casts further shadows on the future of the team.
The Badgers had their latest game as a loss at the hands of the #12 Michigan Wolverines. The Wolverines were a tough team to beat, but the Illini are not that tough. The #24 Wisconsin Badgers will be looking forward to continuing their winning spree that they had before Michigan: The 28-17 victory against the Iowa Hawkeyes and then the 41-24 win over the Nebraska Cornhuskers.
Scoring an average of 30.3 points per game, the Badgers might not be among the best teams in the season but they sure are in a strong segment. A 447.3 total yards average is also a formidable statement and the Badgers flaunt it quite well.
