  • Illini defense delivers win over Gophers, 28-24 Oct 25, 2014 4:54 PM
    When Illini linebacker T.J. Neal ripped the ball out Minnesota running back David Cobb’s hands in the fourth quarter Saturday, cornerback V’Angelo Bentley knew his roommate had delivered something pretty rare for the Illini this season. A chance for the much-criticized defense to win a game. Bentley scooped up the ball and carried it into the end zone with 6:33 to play, giving Illinois a 28-24 lead they’d hold. “I pretty much knew right away — it pretty much bounced right to me,” Bentley said.

  • Minnesota clicking while Illinois struggles Oct 24, 2014 4:14 PM
    Minnesota has won four straight, is undefeated in the Big Ten and has locked up a spot in some kind of bowl game. Coach Jerry Kill says his Gophers (6-1, 3-0) have done all that without really playing their best. That’s probably not what Illinois (3-4, 0-3) wanted to hear.

    Even though the season is younger than young, Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville knew Thursday night’s game in Nashville, featuring the last two teams in the league without a loss in regulation, could mean quite a bit. “It’s a big game for us,” Quenneville said following morning skate. “It’s a chance to get into first place."
