The Illini try to boost their record to 4-3 on Saturday with an 11 a.m. matchup against Wisconsin in Madison.
Illinois won't be the only team starting a quarterback who lost a preseason position battle on Saturday.
The Badgers got 259 rushing yards from star running back Melvin Gordon this past Saturday.
And they still lost.
Despite the Badgers having one of the best running backs in college football, attention continues to be placed on the quarterback position.
The bad news keeps coming for the Badgers.
