Illinois things...

DeVito had similar stats against Wisconsin as McCarthy did against us, and appears to take pretty good care of the ball. He doesn’t appear to be a threat to run, so maybe we’ll see a little more pressure from Phil. I would think that we will.

I think we’ll do a better job against Illinois’ run game than Wisconsin, I haven’t been impressed with the Badger D this season.

Keep in mind, Illinois only had 304 total yards, so it’s not like they were explosive. Effective? Sure! But we will probably not hand the Illini a short field twice in the first half. They did wear Bucky out in the second half and had two long TD drives.
