The Illini try to boost their record to 4-3 on Saturday with an 11 a.m. matchup against Wisconsin in Madison.
There was no bigger surprise Thursday night than Georgia's announcement that star running back Todd Gurley is suspended indefinitely.
The Badgers got 259 rushing yards from star running back Melvin Gordon this past Saturday.
And they still lost.

That'd be Ohio State quarterback Troy Smith. In 2006.
Despite the Badgers having one of the best running backs in college football, attention continues to be placed on the quarterback position.
