If Illinois runs the ball as suggested in the article, they will lose, period. Have you seen OSU's defense?

It would make sense to try and pound the ball against OSU. Illinois' most consistent weapon is that Mendenhall kid. He's a freaking beast. If you could get him going, and get Juice Williams free running the option, they might have a chance. Also, you need to keep OSU's offense cooling its heels as much as possible. If you can keep Boeckman and Robiskie from getting in a rhythm, who knows what could happen.
Still, the Illini need a big game from that Benn kid. He's a difference maker, and you can't depend only on running the ball. If they can get Benn involved with some play-action passes, I kind of like Illinois' chances. However, there might not be a worse big-game coach in the land than the good ol' Zooker. OSU by 17 (damn it)

illinois is going to lose, they are way to cocky and confident and excited to play this game. when i played against a much more dominating team, i was not excited to play against them. i kept my mouth shut and focused on preparing myself for a grueling game and hoping my teammates were going to bring their a+ game as well. not to say they dont have a chance though.

But look who came out on top? The Illini, that's right.
