EVANSTON — For the first time under Tim Beckman, the Illini are going bowling.
Illinois defeated Minnesota, 28-24, on Saturday in Champaign. The Illini improved to 4-4, and the Gophers dropped to 6-2.
CHAMPAIGN — To say there was something different about the Illini on Saturday would be a bit of an understatement.
MADISON, Wis. — Illinois entered Saturday’s game with the Big Ten’s worst rush defense.
Illini linebacker Mason Monheim will be relied upon an awful lot this season to help lead a bounce-back season for the Illinois defense.
He'll also be relied upon for bicycle repair.
