Illinois thoughts on the game

Interesting perspective.

It is often interesting to see what the other team’s coverage is like. The Huskers weren’t dominant against Illinois, but they played better than in their 3 losses.

The Northwestern game will be interesting, two teams struggling to find their way back to non-mediocrity.

Or perhaps struggling to get to mediocre in the Huskers’’ situation.

Middle of the pack would be a step up for us, sadly.

For both teams. The winner of the NU-NU game in two weeks has a fair shot at a bowl game.

Last weekend was probably the first time since 2020 that Nebraska, Northwestern and the Chicago Bears all won on the same weekend. Might be further back than that.
