  • Illini to open Big Ten play in Nebraska Sep 26, 2014 4:06 PM
    Ameer Abdullah has the third-most rushing attempts in the nation and has touched the ball on one-third of Nebraska’s plays from scrimmage. He wants to continue with the heavy workload. That’s good for the 21st-ranked Cornhuskers (4-0) and bad for Illinois (3-1), which visits Memorial Stadium on Saturday.

  • Nebraska coach expecting surprises from Illinois Sep 22, 2014 5:42 PM
    Nebraska coach Bo Pelini and his players will prepare for Illinois this week with the understanding that some of what his defense sees in Saturday night’s Big Ten opener will not necessarily have been something they saw in film study. “They’re a little bit of a flavor-of-the-week type offense,” Pelini said Monday.

     
  • Illini QB struggles to open, finishes strong Sep 22, 2014 7:41 PM
    Through four games this season, Illinois has seen two very different Wes Lunts at quarterback. The first-half Lunt might leave Illini fans wondering what they’ve gotten in the transfer from Oklahoma State. The second-half version has three times rescued a team in danger of upset losses and pulled out wins, putting up some big numbers along the way.

     
  • Illinois survives Texas State scare 42-35 Sep 21, 2014 1:01 AM
    Trying to find a way to help Illinois hold onto a narrow lead Saturday, cornerback V'Angelo Bentley saw his opportunity in a fourth quarter pass thrown a little high. Bentley jumped in front the receiver, snatched the ball and headed 45 yards to the end zone, delivering relief for the Illini and a 42-35 weather-delayed win over Texas State. The head pats and hugs he got on the way to the sideline showed a degree of relief that's become all too familiar for Illinois. Three times this season, the Illini (3-1) have headed to the fourth quarter trailing at home. And three times they've found a way, some way, to win.

    Illinois has been a strong second-half team this season. The Illini (2-1) have scored 56 points on eight touchdowns in those six quarters, including three long strikes from quarterback Wes Lunt. But in those first halves? Illinois has been outscored 61-33 and trailed at halftime in all three games. “It comes down to what are you doing in the first half, and we’re not being successful in the first half,” Illini coach Tim Beckman said.

  • Illinois loses point guard Abrams to ACL tear Sep 11, 2014 4:59 PM
    Illinois starting point guard Tracy Abrams is out for the season with an anterior cruciate ligament tear, coach Jon Groce confirmed Thursday. Abrams tore the ACL in his right knee during preseason practice. Surgery hasn’t yet been scheduled on the senior. “Tracy worked hard in the offseason to put himself in great position heading into his senior year, so he’s obviously disappointed and we are for him as well,” Groce said. “But Tracy personifies toughness; he has the heart of a champion and I know that he will only come back stronger from this experience when he returns to the court next year.”

  • Illini look to shore up Big Ten-worst run defense Aug 25, 2014 11:08 PM
    Illinois gave up rushing yards in bunches in 2013. In a 60-35 loss to Ohio State the total was 441 yards and five touchdowns. Against Indiana, 371 yards in a 52-35 pounding. And against Washington, 273 yards in a 34-24 loss. That’s one of the big reasons the Illini coaches talk about the need to start fast Saturday against Youngstown State.

  • Michigan State girding for Ohio State in Big Ten East Aug 5, 2014 5:26 PM
    Michigan State has played in two of the three Big Ten title games, is the defending Rose Bowl champion and is enjoying the best run in program history with 42 wins in four years. Yet the Spartans cling to an underdog mentality, the product of being overshadowed historically by Michigan and Ohio State. Coach Mark Dantonio never wants his team to stop playing with that edge.
