CHAMPAIGN — The last two seasons, the Illinois defense has been just about as bad as a defense can be.
But there’s something different about this defense in 2015.
CHAMPAIGN — Nebraska has a nasty habit. And it’s just about perplexing a habit as can be imagined.
The Ezekiel Elliott who ran wild in three postseason wins for the Buckeyes last season? He's back, and the Big Ten might want to look out.
CHAMPAIGN — It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish.
And Saturday night, Illinois looked done for against Nebraska. Until it wasn’t.
There are two-week-old babies out there who have never seen the Michigan defense give up a point.
