Illinois football finished 1-7 in the Big Ten last year (4-8 overall), but this is a new year and the team has a new attitude.

Illini quarterbacks Reilly O'Toole and Oklahoma State transfer Wes Lunt warmed up for the team's April 12 spring game in spectacular fashion - by singing along to the Backstreet Boys classic "I Want it That Way,":

The three-and-a-half minute video was actually uploaded by the school late last week, but flew under the radar until picking up steam Wednesday (h/t For The Win).

At one point near the end of the video, somebody off camera weighed in - "I love that you're both singing."

Obviously this won't lead to success in 2014 (Lunt was just 6-for-16 with an interception in the spring game) but hey, at least the Illinois players are having some fun.
